Few things are more thrilling to very young readers than the sudden realisation as a story unfolds that actually, it’s possible for them to know something that the protagonist doesn’t. This touching and funny tale about mistaken identity will have canny little ones roaring with laughter and shouting advice from the moment they realise just what, exactly, the ‘doggy’ Lily finds in her garden is – with the excitement of their superior knowledge increasing page by page (but be warned, Adam Stower’s gorgeous illustrations can be as heart-wrenching as they are hilarious – the images convey a subtle meta-narrative about hope, loss and innocence, which more sensitive children might well benefit from discussing.)
