Review: Dogs in Disguise

Imagine that dogs are walking about dressed up as human beings.  

Dogs in Disguise does just that.

In this book, dogs are making the most of their access to clothes. Hats, coats, and shoes. Tuxedos, waistcoats, and swimsuits. You name it they are trying it on. Even wigs!

Would you recognise a dog in disguise?

With fabulous and funny rhyming text from Peter Bently, and crazy and colourful illustrations by John Bond, you'll discover just what these dogs can do.

Various breeds of dogs are involved. There are schnauzers in pink striped trousers. A shih-tzu in a jujitsu outfit, and French bulldogs in a trenchcoat and hat.

Just imagine dogs you know dropping into the local cafe, heading to the cinema, or browsing at a cclothing store.

Older dogs teach puppies how to disguise themselves. Just because they are young doesn't mean they're not old enough to learn about dressing up. They start with table manners and walking tall. Unfortunately the youngsters do sometimes give the game away, or get a bit mixed up, and can find themselves in a pickle.

Will Dogs in Disguise make you look at your own dog differently? It will certainly provide entertainment with plenty of laughs for the whole family.
