Eddie and Dog by Alison Brown
Eddie is looking for a friend - a friend who likes adventure. Then Eddie meets Dog and Dog wants an adventure too. So Eddie takes Dog home and the pair have a lot of fun until Eddie's mum decides that Dog can't stay as Dog needs a garden. Will Dog stay away for long? This wonderful story with stunning artwork celebrates the excitement of a beautiful friendship. The perfect picture book for any child who loves a little adventure and especially for one who loves dogs.
A fun and entertaining book about a dog who adopts a young boy, Eddie, and however the mother tries to send him away, because they don't have a garden for him to play in, the Dog keeps on returning, finally with a plan which might just work!
This is a great book for dog lovers or young adventurers. The story is told in simple language, with little blocks of story contained within great illustrations which will capture the imagination of young children and visually tell the story, making it a great book for children to 'read' themselves and make up the story from the pictures within the book. It would make a great bedtime story or one to share at story time.
Thank you to the publishers, Little Tiger Press, for sending me the book to review.
