The Waggiest Tails

Publisher: Otter-Barry Books

Review

This slim book manages to pack in a lot of poems and they’re all about dogs. Covering every canine topic, from smells to snacks and sticks, there are short silly rhymes and longer poems and verse to enjoy.

Of course, these poems should be read aloud (perhaps to a dog!) but Ed Boxall’s illustrations mean there is plenty for the solitary reader to enjoy, too.

Filled with pooches full of personality, you will get to meet Bruno, the smallest dog on the farm, as well as New York’s most pampered pet, Princess Zyara.

Brian Moses and Roger Stevens are both seasoned children’s poets in their own right and their love of dogs have brought them together for this sweet book that would make a perfect present for any young dog owners.
