Talk, Oscar, Please! by Karen Kaufman Orloff


Talk, Oscar, Please! by Karen Kaufman Orloff

This title is suitable for children aged 3 to 6 years old. A dog is a man's (and a child's) best friend, but it's tough when your best friend can only bark, yap, growl and howl! Young readers will empathise with this sweet and funny story of a boy who begs his dog to talk. Tim Bowers' humorous pictures give a glimpse of what life might be like if dogs could crack jokes, chat on the phone and even sing lullabies!
