What kid hasn't gazed longingly at doe-eyed cocker spaniels and bouncy little terriers, dreaming of the day their parents finally consent to get them that longed-for puppy? Adopt-A-Dog is a book that indulges this fantasy to the max. Delightful illustrations accompany descriptions of each breed, and young readers are encouraged to engage with the responsibilities of dog ownership by completing quizzes, drawing funny cross-breeds, doodling doggy-hairstyles, and designing dog-beds. Holly Maguire is a fresh young illustration talent, whose warm, funny pen and ink drawings will appeal to a broad range of aspiring young dog-owners.
