A puppy’s first year is filled with findings, wiggles and laughter.
Puppies squirm in all the odd places, sniff all the strange objects, lick everything they can and find something to splash into even when we don’t want them to!
This book of poems explores the first year of a puppy’s life, going through an adventure after the other, one month at a time.
Puppy’s first days, puppy’s first weeks in a new home, puppy’s encounters with snow and the school bag, puppy’s duty to protect… What happens when puppy is full of good intentions, yet his actions go wrong?
Read the rhymes and laugh with your little one.

This is the second book by this author that I’ve read and once again she didn’t disappoint. We have a story which spans the first 12 months of a puppy’s life with his human family seen through his eyes. Experiencing how he perceives his behaviour compared with how his human family perceives his behaviour is fun and provides the reader with much laughter. The pictures throughout this book only serve to emphasise the fun the puppy was having. It is very obvious that he feels loved and included in his immediate and extended family. We see him trying to ‘protect’ his family from a newspaper to making a new friend in Granny because she is small like he is as well as experiencing snow (which he thought was going to be a person).
This is a sweet series of stories, which whilst it’s not written in my preferred style of every line rhyming, I found it to be a very pleasant and quick read. Something that everyone could enjoy regardless of age.
