Silly Doggy

I'm a big sucker for dog stories and Adam Stower's  book "Silly Doggy" does not disappoint. I love Lily's perspective and positive attitude in this story when she discovers something in her garden that she has always wanted.....a doggy.  A very big, hairy, just escaped from the zoo doggy!

Stower's characters are so expressive. The connection between the bear and Lilly really pulls at the 'ol heart strings. Stower has followed Silly Doggy with another book call Naughty Kitty. Can't wait to get my hands on that one!

Adam Stower lives in England. You can see more of his art here.

Oooh, I am in love with this story! I love bears, and that this little girl has fallen for him is just precious. I think I need to make a trip to the library to look for Silly Doggy and Naughty Kitty.
