A Girl Called Dog (Paperback)

Nicola Davies

9 years +

Dog wasn't really a dog, she was a human girl. But she was called Dog because that is what Uncle had always called her. Dog has never been outside of nasty Uncle's pet shop. She sleeps in a box on a floor and has no idea what the world outside looks like. Then in a flurry of colour and feathers, Carlos the parrot arrives in the shop and her world as she knows it changes for ever. Managing to escape, Dog, Carlos and her best friend Esme the coati set out, in search of the same thing, somewhere they belong, somewhere they can call home. But the world is a huge, dangerous place, and they face danger and adventure at every turn...This is a spirit-soaring tale of adventure, friendship and belonging that will appeal to all lovers of Michael Morpurgo and Roald Dahl.

"Gripping tale" -

I bought this book as part of my uni course! It is a gripping tale of hope, love and adventure. The story of Dog made me cry (although children may not empathise enough for it to reduce them to tears) and made me smile. A real page turner that could be read in one sitting by a competent book lover.
