Dog on a Digger

The Tricky Incident

Publisher: Old Barn Books

A man lives in a caravan at a recycling site with his dog, who helps with everything – even sitting next to his owner as he operates the digger. They may be a little lonely, but a visitor changes everything when she arrives with her little dog, too.

This delightful pencil-drawn wordless picture book is a real beauty, with an affectionate relationship between a dog and his owner. Because it’s wordless, the story is very much up to the reader, and presents a great opportunity for shared reading and talking about the lovely pictures.
