Black Dog is a charming story of fear and courage and how even the smallest of us can be the bravest of all. One morning, Mr Hope awakes to a large black dog outside his house. Alarmed, he runs for cover. As each member of the Hope family awakens and their collective fear rises, the dog grows in size until it is bigger than their house. Only the youngest member of the family, Small, is brave enough to investigate. As Small interacts with the dog as it chases her around, the dog shrinks back to a normal size. Filled with beautifully illustrated pages, Black Dog is sure to be a household hit. I loved the descriptive text and subtle but busy drawings, and especially the underlying message of how one persons fear can spread. An absolute must-have. Pamela Roach --Pamela Roach
