The Lovereading4Kids comment
Award-winning Anthony Browne tells a touching story of how two children from very different families become friends partly through their dogs. When the dogs Victoria and Albert are let off the leads they race off together playing chase. Their owners sit far from each other on the bench. But gradually Smudge and Charles edge closer and together until they too set off to play. What of their parents? They remain as far apart as ever…Anthony Browne tells a rich story through his powerful and evocative illustrations.
The Good Book Guide Review. One of this most popular modern artist's earliest picture books, full of wonderful visual jokes such as a hedge cut in the same shape as the woman passing by. shows how the park is a place of mingling for children and for animals, even if adults tend to keep themselves to themselves.
