The human world is as confusing as ever for our canine hero. He can't understand why Trixie is getting bigger and bigger, and Rex is getting more grumpy. Then Trixie comes home with another small human! And nobody seems keen on our hero getting very close to him. But he soon finds consolation with the rather attractive lady dog next door who goes through a rather similar transformation to Trixie! A rambunctious dog's eye view of the chaos a small baby brings to the house.

About The Author

Michael Rosen is a hugely best-selling author of picture books and poetry. His classic picture book We're Going on a Bear Hunt illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, has become a permanent favourite. Michael frequently appears on radio and gives talks and lectures on children's literature. He is the winner of the Eleanor Farjeon Award for services to children's literature. Michael lives in London. Neal Layton is the talented illustrator of a number of books for Bloomsbury. He was selected by Quentin Blake as one of a 'baker's dozen' of talented children's illustrators working today, and won the Smarties Award with his book Oscar and Arabella.

'Fresh and entertaining, and ultimately enlightening' Scottish Sunday Herald 'The combination of Neal Layton's bright and simple illustrations and Rosen's child's-eye humour makes this a superb means of empathising with a child who's a bit miffed about a new arrival' Observer 'A good book to have if you (or the family dog) are about to produce a little usurper. The naive art illustrations are tantamount to scribbles, but were eagerly approved by my resident three-year-old' Sunday Tribune (Dublin) 'Amusing ... Neal Layton's scratchy, childlike illustrations are a delight' Independent on Sunday
