Silly Doggy!

Publisher: Templar Publishing

Review

When Lily finds an animal in her garden, she looks at his four legs, tail and big, wet nose and deduces that despite his enormous size, he is a dog. Readers can see, however, that Lily’s new furry friend is in fact a brown bear; undaunted, Lily takes him home with her and the pair have a fun and chaotic time together.

Lily’s mum insists that her daughter puts up ‘lost’ posters and the local safari park eventually come to claim the bear – Lily’s sadness at losing her friend is short-lived when she spots a large and suspiciously stripy ‘cat’ in the garden…

The bear/ doggy is an endearing character, particularly in the illustrations depicting him staring ruefully out of the page at the reader, as Lily dresses him up in a stripy scarf and yellow bow! This is a fun picturebook, featuring a dust-jacket that folds out into a delightful poster.
