Dogbird and Other Mixed-Up Tales by Paul Stewart

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Three funny and fanciful stories about animals who have got just a little bit mixed-up.

Heavily illustrated by Tony Ross these are perfect for those beginning to read.


Dogbird and Other Mixed-Up Tales by Paul Stewart

Presents three tales from Smarties Prize-winning author Paul Stewart. "Woof!" features Alice's new pet budgie that doesn't speak. In "Oink!", greedy Albert pinches a Mars bar and his grandmother warns him of the curse of the were-pig. "Ribbit!" has Looby and the croaking frog in the garden.


Warm, funny and light, these are great stories Junior Beautifully written by Smarties Prize-winning author Paul Stewart and beautilfully illustrated Bournemouth Daily Echo
