The Lovereading4Kids comment
Good dog Bob has the misfortune to be owned by Rob, a very, very bad burglar. Rob is always doing really terrible things and Bob has to do all he can to put them right. When Bob returns a sack of presents stolen by Rob he finds the perfect way of making his escape! Now Bob can live a good life but what about Rob..?!
Bob and Rob by Sue Pickford
Rob is a burglar and he's bad. Really bad. Bob is his dog, and he is really good, baking cakes and helping old ladies across the road. But he remains faithful to his horrible owner, helping him with robberies. One night Bob and Rob see some inviting packages through the window of a house, and can't resist stealing them all. When the parcels turn out to be children's toys Rob is disgusted, but Bob feels sorry for the children and returns the toys.
The ending sees Rob behind bars, while Bob is adopted by the family to whom he returned the toys. He now has a lovely life as a proper dog, with no more robbing and stealing.
'Wackily illustrated in comic style, in bold, bright colours, Sue Pickford's promising debut picture book should win many young friends especially those who like humour of the slapstick variety.'
'Engaging and very funny Primary Times 'Amusing tale with fun illustrations & well thought out characters. Detail is worth spending time over & story would stand up to repeated reading.'
'Slapstick humour, a comic strip style and bold, bright images characterize this promising debut picture book.'
