A few weeks ago (maybe longer than that as I have been having a few problems) I was sent this lovely book and it has taken me ages and ages to getting around to finishing this review – which I feel bad about – but especially bad about it as my kids absolutely LOVE this book. It is now one of their favourite books.
It is about a little dog who loves puddles. The story takes you through the lovely drawings – showing you all the kind of puddles the little dog loves. But then he finds a puddle that is the best puddle in the world but he is rejected by the pig mother and her babies who live in that big puddle. However, when something happens to separate the smallest of the pig babies, Puddle Pug (because of his knowledge of puddles) knows exactly where to find the little pig and brings him back to his mother and then they all become friends.
Its really a very lovely story and the pictures are very cute! I’ve read it several times already and we’ve only had it a few weeks. Here are a few photos:
And finally, this is what the kids through of it in their own words:
Here are a few more photos of the book and a press release:
