Gill Lewis has created a delightful book which combines a school setting readers will be familiar with, with the appeal of puppies. Young readers are sure to related to the issues raised in the stories and will enjoy the fantastic black and white illustrations. If you enjoyed Michael Morpurgo's Mudpuddle Farm series then this is definitely the book for you.
