I am a Dog by Alan Brown


I am a Dog by Alan Brown

Mum and Dad think I am a boy, but really I am a dog... This little boy goes to the park on a lead, eats dinner on the floor, and digs holes in the garden. But everything he does makes his pongy baby sister cry. So when his dad offers to take him to the pound to pick out his very own dog, he quickly realises he has to become a boy again in order to take care of his new pet.
