Praise for Dog Diaries

“Lively and funny, these illustrated chaotic canine capers will keep young readers entertained and eagerly anticipating further instalments of Junior’s diaries.”

Armadillo magazine

“Got a lot of laughs from our testers, two of whom are obsessed with dogs, so they particularly loved it. It tells the story from a dog’s point of view and has plenty of illustrations for kids to enjoy ... A popular choice.”

Independent Online

“A perfect story to tickle the funny bone of any young reader!”

Megan Rix

“Narrated at breathless speed by super-excited puppy Junior, this new series is spot-on for newly confident readers ... Junior's enthusiasm for life is catching, and it's impossible not to be completely caught up in his descriptions of his daily activities ... Great fun, and super-readable too.”
