This is a book with dogs in – dogs by turns alert, helpful, disobedient and tuneful. All with largely well-meaning ‘owners’, and all drawn for your pleasure and understanding by Claudia Schmid, with words added for your greater delight and confusion by Matt Harvey.

Here are dogs sniffing other dogs, dogs resisting their owners’ authority, dogs tucked under arms, sitting on laps, crushing their carer, and doing their business (or not*) where they oughtn’t.

One of the dogs is enormous and seems to be worshipped as a deity but most are recognisable and refreshingly normal – in the surprisingly weird way that normal things seem when you look at them closely.
