THE KING AND THE DOG
‘Sit! Lie! Come! shouted the king “I am the king,’
‘Stop! Fetch! Heel!’ he bellowed.
Then he ran off after the dog.
Nice? They are all like this and great discussion starters and encouragements for children to create their own ‘stories’. The illustrations fit the mood of the book perfectly.
