Description

Bridget is very hungry. But because Mum is so busy looking after Bridget's little brother, she hasn't even noticed! So Bridget steals a biscuit from the shed. The only problem with these biscuits is that they are not meant for human beings, they're meant for dogs! But the biscuit tasted good ...and before long Bridget is convinced she is turning into a dog. What would you do if you were a dog for a day?show more

Review quote

"Award-winning illustrator Helen Cooper's hugely imaginative dog fantasy carries the reader on a wild and explosive night-time caper after Bridget eats a dog biscuit by mistake" The Times 20090214 "I can't imagine ever being disappointed by a Helen Cooper picture book. She is the quintessential children's illustrator, producing a consistently high quality artwork which never lacks child-friendliness" -- Michael Thorn Carousel "Cooper is an assured storyteller. The lyrical text is packed with subtle rhymes and is very pleasing to read aloud" Evening Standard 20090122 "Helen Cooper surpasses her wildly successful Pumpkin Soup with this touching story about the power of childhood imagination and its immense capacity for delight and terror. The illustrations are gorgeous and there is a recipe for delicious non Dog Biscuits at the end of the story" Irish Post 20081206 "Helen Cooper, the author of the award-winning The Bear Under the Stairs, has delivered another gorgeously daft, funny tale for tots" Sunday Business Post 20081207show more
