Praise for Daft Dog
Daft Dog… looks set to become a favourite. The illustrations and text bring out the humour that children will love…a wonderfully wacky story. Bookseller
From the Back Cover
It’s a dark, thundery night and two children lie in bed, afraid and unable to sleep. Then their cat says he wants to show them where all the noise outside is really coming from…
And so begins a magical journey as the cat leads the children back through millions of years to a jungle of long, long ago. There, a group of dinosaurs are dancing the night away. The children romp and stomp, whoop and swoop with a tyrannosaurus rex, a brontosaurus and a stegosaurus. And, when they become sleepy and can dance no more, there is only one place they want to be…back home, safe in bed.See all Product description

When reading the rhyming story, you can actually get louder and crashy, and then float down to a gentle whisper towards the end.
A definite favourite in our family for parents and children.
My daughter is not afraid of thunder since we had this book, as she thinks it is the dinosaurs dancing in the sky.
The pictures are clearly drawn and coloured, and the story is told in a lovely rhyme. There is just the right amount of reading and pictures for a bed time story.
Great book, highly recommended.
It is a good length for a bedtime story, written in simple rhyming couplets with a good rhythm - it is a fun story and great to read aloud. The illustrations are nice and colourful. As another reviewer pointed out, the book is strangely reminiscent of 'Where The Wild Things Are' with dance (like the Royal Rumble) and the sad departure.
My son, 4, loves this book although he is currently so dinosaur obsessed phase that I suspect he would love any book with dinosaurs in it, particularly dinosaurs he can recognise and name: Pterodactyl, Tyrannosaurus, Stegosaurus, Triceratops and Brachiosaurus/Apatosaurus/Diplodocus (I can't tell the difference).
