“Overall, this is a great story that delivers a very gentle message of not judging others by their look and how opening up to new experiences can be so much fun.
It has been beautifully illustrated, showing Shampooch in all her pampered glory and will appeal to boys and girls.
It is, for the most part, easy to read. There are some nonsense words in the form of the dogs names (Shampooch, Wagsy McBone, Woof-Whiffily and Sniffy Bottingham) which are great for children learning phonics as it forces children to put their phonics skills to work and sound out the words.”
