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.

Format: Paperback
This is a highly enjoyable children's story. It follows Georgie, Dee and Cat on an adventure to find out how the storm is made. They get out of bed, take a balloon flight to an island where the dinosaurs dance (making the storm) and are allowed to join in before returning home to bed.
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).

Georgie and Dee have been firm favourites in our house since this arrived as a gift some 18 months ago and it is still a regular choice. When they wave goodbye to the dinosaurs it always brings to mind Where the Wild Things Are, a very different book, but another firm favourite.

By Andrew - (sekrapa) TOP 500 REVIEWER on 18 Sept. 2009
Format: Paperback
This is one of my daughters favourite books. Virtually every week we have to read this book to her, even though she has collected over 50 books. It tells the story of Georgie and Dee who are afraid of a thunderstorm. Cat tells them not to be afraid and to follow him, where they go in a balloon and float to the clouds where they meet all dinosaurs. At first they are afraid, but cat tells them its OK. The dinosaurs then start to dance, crashing and banging their feet until they all collapse on the floor. Then they go back home in the balloon to bed.

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.
