"Are you absolutely sure you're a dog?"



Lucy is on the search for a pet dog. She has saved all of her money and has bought a dog bed, toys and dog magazines in preparation.

She sets out on her mission and interviews animals along the way.
She comes across a frog, but he wasn't interested as he wouldn't be able to have a bath; a fox wasn't keen as he liked living outdoors.

Then a 'dog' called Bear finds Lucy and applies for the position. Lucy, not quite convinced that bear is a dog - as he doesn't look like any pictures in her magazine, accepts his offer.

Bear settles in well and enjoys all the love and attention from Lucy.
However, one day they have a fight, as they find that having, and being, a pet is a lot more difficult than they anticipated.

This is a charming story about acceptance, and learning that being different is a good thing.

In hard-cover format with simple yet stylish illustrations - that reveal more upon second reading, it will appeal to readers of all ages.
It took me a few reads to see that bear was stalking Lucy before he presented himself as everything she was looking for.

This is a lovely, quirky book that carries a very understated message of accepting people as they are.
