Featured Books for 3+ readers Recommended Children's eBooks

Shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Book Prize 2009

A rollicking canine caper, that’s quite frankly barking mad but is sure to appeal to the quirkier side of human nature. Little kids will find it hysterical whilst some parents will try to keep a stiff upper lip whilst reading but fail completely in their efforts. With wonderful rhyming text, each and every word rolls off the tongue almost seamlessly and together with wacky illustrations of every shape of dog; small, large, fat and thin, you and your child can’t fail to be caught up in this rollicking read.


The Great Dog Bottom Swap Synopsis

The day has arrived for the Dogs' Summer Ball. It's so high class that each dog must remove their bottom before they are allowed inside the hall. But in the middle of all the frivolity something unexpected happens and the dogs have to make a hasty exit...with or without the correct bottom!
