The Lovereading4Kids comment

May 2010 Guest Editor Philip Ardagh has chosen this book:

This is the simplest of everyday tales beautifully told, with well-chosen words and wonderfully straightforward - characterful - pictures. In essence, it's the story of a white dog with black spots who gets so dirty that he's mistaken for a black dog with white spots and is not recognized by the girl and boy who own him. When I stumbled upon a copy of this long-forgotten (by me) book as an adult, it turned on a light in my brain and hurtled me back to the time when I read it as a library book which I took out again and again. When I mentioned it to my (big) brother Martin, he remembered it too, with equal fondness. Interestingly, my mother had no memory of it. Rest assured, my son has a copy of this and other Harry the dog adventures. I recently read a short-story about Harry with pictures by another illustrator. It wasn't the same!

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.
