From Australia's favourite picture-book creator, comes this energetic story about a little dog who causes a big commotion.

Meet my dog Bigsy. He's only small, but everyone knows he's the boss.

Each morning he visits the animals on the farm.
Squawk, neigh, quack, moo, baa, oink, cluck, purr, ruff ruff ruff!

What a lot of noise! And all because of Bigsy!
