Notso Hotso

Review

Anthony, a very vain dog, is horrified when his fur starts to fall out in clumps. On a humiliating trip to the vet, his body is shaved, leaving only the fur on his head and tip of his tail so that he resembles a lion. Naked and embarrassed, he returns home expecting a torrent of abuse from the neighbouring animals, but to his surprise nobody recognises him. Anthony makes the most of his new appearance, wreaking revenge on his old enemy: next-door's cat! Expressive illustrations and short chapters make this amusing dog's-eye view of the world ideal for readers just beginning to read on their own.
