‘This is a funny, beautiful book that we both really enjoyed. The story bobs along briskly and is accompanied by some gorgeous, pink and pretty illustrations which capture Shampooch brilliantly (I also enjoyed the Tom and Jerry style legs-only view of humans). There is also a nice message about not judging based on looks and also being willing to try new adventures – something T is always willing to do.
A lovely book to read with children 3 and up with obvious mega-appeal for dog lovers everywhere (it was the dogs on the front cover that pulled T in). A gentle, humorous story that children will enjoy reading again and again. T enjoyed it and told me, “I liked it because it was silly and messy.” That statement seemed to be all he wanted to give though as you can see in tonight’s solo read…’
