Publisher: Frances Lincoln Children’s Books

Ralf is a funny dog, with short little legs and a long, long body. He is always getting under his family’s feet, until one day they can’t take it anymore and lock him outside. When a fire sweeps through the house that night, Ralf’s long body is just what is needed to alert everyone - but can it stretch far enough?

This gorgeous book, by the creator of the 'peace for Paris' symbol, is a great story about differences and acceptance. The illustrations are fabulous, bursting with colour and humour. It is the ideal book for children just starting to read on their own. Highly recommended.
