Format: Paperback
This story is delightfully entertaining. It was given to me as a gift for my grandson who lives in Australia. I read stories to him several times a week using Skype. He is nearly four, and although this story is marketed for children slightly older, he loves hearing it as much as I love reading it to him.

Fiona Cummings unique style is clearly evident in this book, where her very human-like animal characters (the Schnoops), share a road trip adventure with which children can easily relate. My grandson particularly enjoys Jezza, the not very artistic Rubbish Artist, who likes to create his masterpieces out of rubbish. He is even asking me if I can buy him a soft giraffe that looks just like him.

Though not really a picture book, the illustrations are delightful (and not having an overabundance of illustrations makes it easier for me to read the book online).

I've heard Fiona Cummings is writing a sequel to this book...I can't wait!

My stepdaughter (now 16) grew up on Fiona Cummings' Sleepover Club books, which she loved. I was very pleased to see a new book out for a younger audience.

I read it to my seven-year-old in one sitting (because he insisted). It is a delightful read. The characters are very human, with both qualities and flaws. The writing is concise and very funny, but also sad as we follow the very endearing Little Doogs in his search for a permanent home.

The mixture of straight narrative with Little Doogs' personal thoughts, as well as some very imaginative typesetting and illustrations, creates a great, pacy read.

There is a trailer for the next adventure at the end of the book. We will have to wait to see if Little Doogs gets his wish. In the meantime we are enjoying the associated blog where Little Doogs posts photos (including Jezza's "rubbish art") and comments - free snippets of his extremely very funny little life.

My seven year old daughter devoured this book from cover to cover in one night. She loved it and has developed a strange affection for Jezza the Geordie Giraffe. Didn't get chance to read it myself as she immediately lent the book to her friend who I'm also told is enjoying it immensely (though at a much slower rate :-))
We eagerly searched for Book 2 on the internet but to no avail. Hopefully it won't be too long before the 2nd instalment is off the author's laptop and on the bookshelves as my daughter is desperate to know if Little Doogs gets his 'forever home'. So come on Ms Cummings et al - get typing!!!

My daughter is obsessed with the world of animals do I am forever searching for new reading material that is of top quality. I read the book with my daughter and made it last over several eveings. My daughter discussed the book every night wondering if Honey would ever be nice to anyone and if doogs would ever find a place to call home? When is the next one coming out? We can't wait!
