Hickory Dickory Dog by Alison Murray


Hickory Dickory Dog by Alison Murray

Zac and Rufus, like all best friends, stick together. So, when Zac goes to playschool, his pup goes too! Zac's little dog wants to join in with EVERYTHING - painting time, lunchtime, even garden time ...resulting in one very messy pup at home time! This engaging story, with its warm, retro art style, is an entertaining introduction to playschool. Alison Murray is the creator of Apple Pie ABC and One, Two That's My Shoe! as well as Little Mouse.


A friendly introduction to what a school day looks like - and how much fun might be in store. The Horn Book Magazine
