Dog in Boots: Fall in love with a romantic book with a difference

Published on: 23 February 2018 Author: Catriona Wightman

Valentine's Day might have been and gone, but we've completely fallen in love with this beautiful picture book.

Dog in Boots

Meet Philip the sausage dog! He's the star of Paula Metcalf's adorable picture book Dog in Boots, which we've completely fallen for.

This lovely tale follows Philip as he pines for Penelope, a dog he sees from his window - but will he ever manage to woo her?

After all, Philip is a dachshund so small his ears brush the floor... and he's too small to reach up and kiss her, even on his tiptoes. So can he come up with a plan to make himself taller?

We won't spoil what happens next, but trust us when we say this is one book you won't be able to resist. And for a sneak peek, just check out some of the pages in our gallery below!
