Raymond

Publisher: Walker Books

Review

Raymond is your typical dog: good, happy, loved by his family. But he suddenly thinks that to really be part of the family he should be more like them. With each passing day, he becomes more and more human, even landing a job at the prestigious Dogue magazine, until he’s so famous that he almost forgets what it’s like to be a dog.

Colourful, clever and witty, Raymond offers something to readers of all ages. While essentially a story about a dog having a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, adults and older readers will pick up a meaningful message about the work/life balance. Children, on the other hand, will enjoy Raymond’s delightful antics and all his fellow canines taking on human behaviours.
