Reminiscent of Hairy Maclary, this fantastic tale is perfect for dog lovers everywhere!
Dexter, Daisy and Lily are up to their usual doggy tricks causing mayhem in the park, chased by their young owners. Three mischievous mutts and a muddy stream should be a recipe for a disaster but instead these clever dogs bring everyone together. Soon dogs and children are all best of friends!
This warm and funny rhyming story celebrates the joy of playing outside and the bond between children and their pets.
Catchy rhyming text races you through the book and it is superb to read aloud.
