Adopt-a-Dog: An illustrated guide to choosing and caring for a dog
What child hasn’t gazed yearningly at doe-eyed cocker spaniels and bouncy little terriers, dreaming of the day their parents finally consent to get them that longed-for puppy? Adopt A Dog is a gorgeously illustrated book that outlines the characteristics of 35 different breeds and introduces kids to the resposibilities of grooming, feeding and caring for a dog. Warm, humorous and stylish, with five-colour printing and a durable, PVC cover wrap, this is the ultimate book in which to indulge puppy love. A foldout stickyscape at the back allows kids to position dogs inside a park, a salon and a home with reusable stickers.
