Because that's what Seadog is. He's not a fluffy, shiny dog, nor a tricks dog. He's not a big fan of baths, either - but that's okay - the father and son in this book love him just the way he is.
This gorgeous story for little ones is told in a rhythmic, lolloping way that is perfect for reading aloud.
Jellett's vivacious illustrations roll right along with the text, adding visual punch at just the right moment. I also love his naval signal flag endpapers.
A treat of a book for little ones, this scruffy mutt will steal your heart.
