Some Dogs Do

(15 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Walker Books

One morning, Sid the dog is filled with an overwhelming feeling of happiness which – to his utter surprise – sends him floating into the sky and all the way to school!

He excitedly tells his friends, but is laughed at and ridiculed by them, because they all know - of course – that dogs can’t fly. Sid is challenged to prove his aeronautical skills, but by this time his happiness has been replaced with a sad, heavy feeling inside; when he leaps into the air, he just lands with a flop on the ground.

When he arrives home, it falls to Sid’s dad to cheer him up with a little secret! Colourful illustrations and rhyming text combine in this truly uplifting tale.
