My nearly-7 year old lad read this aloud to me one morning during February half term. He/we laughed our way through it. It is very cleverly written and the storyline is not obvious (or at least it didn't fall the way I expected). At first, as my lad started reading, I was worried about too much emphasis being placed on nightmares, but this is only a starting point and it quickly took a number of speedy twists and turns away from this subject. LOVED the dog. The illustrations are plentiful, very entertaining and caused much amusement. My son had to explain one of the "jokes" to me as I didn't get it at first, so there you are (hoo-mans)! Excellent book, small and very easy to hold. I intend to give this as a birthday present in future. We will definitely be looking out for more Ross Collins in future.
