The Lovereading4Kids comment
Interest Age 5-8 Who’s to blame when things go wrong? Dogs Norman and Ringo realise that they are the Blamehounds when they get told off for everything from farts to an unexpected splat of peach juice. But then they come up with a plan! Soon the Blamehounds along with other dogs are making a small fortune through a few backhanders just by taking the blame humans want to avoid. Ross Collins captures the joke perfectly in words and pictures.

Blamehounds by Ross Collins
A hilariously wacky read from author/illustrator Ross Collins. Whenever there's a pong, poo or puddle that can't be explained, Norman and Ringo are the hounds that take the blame. Determined to exploit their status for profit, Blamehounds Inc. is soon in business and small dogs the world over are admitting responsibility for accidents, eruptions and even the occasional war.
For 5–8s, these quality stories promote good reading practice for all newly independent readers.
