A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month September 2023

The deliciously light touch of author/ illustrator Jon Agee deadpan humour makes a good joke out of a girl’s determination to get a dog.

Assuming it will be easy so she visits an animal shelter to choose the exact one she wants. So sure is she of her purchase that she even takes a cart so that she can easily get it home. But things don’t go according to plan. The man in the animal shelter offers her an anteater, a baboon and a python adding all kinds of suggestions as to their possible dog-like characteristics. None will serve. Can they come to a compromise? They can! And readers will learn that pets are not always what you think they will be…

A simple text and warm-hearted, soft focus illustrations make this a delight.

Julia Eccleshare M.B.E
