Book Description

1 April 2010
Biff is not like ordinary dogs. He doesn't do dog stuff like peeing on lampposts, scratching his fleas or drinking out of toilets. If you throw him a stick, he'll just look at you like you're crazy. No, Biff is no ordinary dog. Biff likes moonlight and music and walking on his tiptoes. You see, Biff doesn't think he's a dog, Biff thinks he's a ballerina, which is all very well ...But dogs don't do ballet - do they? The hilarious story of a small dog with a big personality and even bigger dreams!

5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh out loud funny 27 April 2010
Format:Hardcover
I loved this laugh out loud tale of a determined dog and his quest to dance. Perfectly illustrated with a quirky, engaging style, this is a story about following your dreams and believing in yourself. I know Biff is going to be a firm favourite for years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book about not putting people/dogs into boxes ;) 13 April 2010
By SJF
Format:Paperback
My 3 year old loved this story about a pet dog who has dreams of being a ballerina. Well written and lovely story teaching kids that we shouldn't put people in boxes and that anyone can achieve their dreams if only they try ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars lovely book- well recommended. 15 April 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well, I'm not a 3 year old, but I am a children's book illustrator and bookseller, and this book stood out to me. So many picture books have such dull, unimaginative storylines... often badly written too. This book stands out on the shelf for a quirky, charming, original storyline, based around the idea of being oneself. It stands out for its' beautiful, well-observed illustration. It stands out because it made me smile. And it stands out by being a good book; and not just a good book for kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sugar Pug Fairy Gets Raving Reviews 3 Dec 2010
By Marc
Format:Paperback
This book tells the story of a talented Pug who wants nothing more than to dance. Ever since I first read it to my four and five year old, they have been asking for it to be read every night! The story is compelling and fun and the drawings are beautiful. A must buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars In the top three kids books I have ever read! 31 July 2010
By EKB
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really love this book!

It is so beautifully written. I think the language is really lovely for adults to read without being too sophisticated for children to understand.

The illustrations are very fun and have a lovely stylised vintage look.

I have bought this book for my 3 year old daughter and 4 other girls as gifts and they have all loved it!

It is funny so I think boys would enjoy it too but I have to admit I would not buy it for a boy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely 8 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this to a group of 5-7 year old children at work (including boys) and it really held their interest, so I bought this for my niece. Despite its humour and implausibility, It's a touching story with the underlying message that you should follow your dreams and not listen to negative feedback. Entertaining, but also confidence building!
