BUY – The Great Dog Bottom Swap
Here’s the real story behind the friendly dog bottom sniff.
It all began at the Dog’s Summer Ball, a highbrow affair with bow ties and tails…but bottoms, yes those little o-rings were hung up at the door!
A fine time of dancing and music and magic, was had by the pooches, then fun times turned tragic. The hall caught on fire and with haste they escaped, they mixed up the bottoms, what an awful mistake!
This lively rhyming tale is reportedly taken from an older folk story. The clever visual layout and amusing artwork from award winning illustrator Mei Matsuoka will bring smiles to children, dog lovers and art appreciators alike.
A great little yarn.

Inspired by living close to the sea, Peter’s first book for Macmillan was the terrifically toothy The Shark in the Dark. Staying with the watery theme, Peter Bently has employed his trademark humour and mastery of rhyme once again to the fun-filled Cats Ahoy!
