A child and his mother take their dog out for her daily walk. She leaps into a smelly pond, rolls in the mud and then, when she gets home, jumps on the bed while she’s soaking wet. A warm and funny depiction of the mischief caused by a family's dog and a little boy’s delight in walking, chasing and washing her. Helen Oxenbury’s First Storybooks perfectly describe the small but memorable events of childhood. The words are a delight and are perfect for reading aloud, and the pictures warm, affectionate visions of a child’s world parents and children will instantly recognize and love.
