A brilliant follow-up to the classic picture book, DR DOG from the inimitable Babette Cole.
Doctor Dog, the Gumboyle family's favourite pet and their very own trusty physician, is having a well-deserved rest on a tropical island. Until, that is, the Gumboyles turn up and need rescuing from a variety of nasty holiday ailments!
With the help of the longlost herbal scientist Proffessor Dash-Hund, Dr Dog uses herbal remedies to soothe mosquito bites and sunburn, settle a nasty case of motion sickness and draw out a big juicy boil. But the Gumboyles have one problem that even Dr Dog can't solve. A hungry and highly dangerous plant is lurking in the campsite and it could strike at any moment . . .
“Charming, educative (in a rather naughty way) and funny . . . Take daily, repeatedly”
Observer on DR DOG
“She draws with tremendous vitality”
“[She] produces zany, comical images of exuberant and eccentric characters in children's books that break down taboos”
Independent on HAIR IN FUNNY PLACES
“an excellent fun book for reading to the fives-plus.”
