The Lovereading4Kids comment

Can a witch change Harry the dog from being a rough and rude creature into a charming and loveable family pet? Daphne the witch thinks that she can – even though Harry’s behaviour is quite a formidable challenge! Daphne’s lessons are designed to help all children understand the importance of good manners.


The Witch and the Dog by Sue McMillan

Introduce basic manners and etiquette to children with this laugh out loud story. Daphne is a charming witch who has a challenge on her hands with Harry, a dog with no manners at all. Can she transform him from a messy, mannerless mutt into a perfect, polished pooch, or will she have no choice but to turn him into a toad?
