15 things not to do with a puppy
Buy this great hardcover book here...

This is a great read to share with young children and anyone who has ever had a puppy, or thinking about it. Young children will love the illustrations and the sense of trying hard to tame a puppy in difficult circumstances.

What shouldn’t you do with a puppy? Well, don’t take him to the library that is a seriously bad idea! Don’t try and take him for a walk when he is asleep, because he won’t budge an inch! Definitely don’t let him have the remote control, because you’re going to have some seriously amazing programmes and a very soggy remote!

Margaret Mc Allister has written this hilarious follow-up to 15 Things Not do with Your Granny, it is a very warm and great book to read and teaches just how to love and share time and fun with a puppy.

Holly Sterling is a new illustrator in children’s books, but already her style is well received. Previous books, like Everybody Feels in 2016, and Hiccups, her first book that she has written and illustrated are great successes.

Frances Lincoln Children’s Books are part of the Quarto Group and publish really excellent titles.

Hiccups
Review or buy this book from Amazon.co.uk...

A delightful first book from Holly Sterling, she has previously illustrated the Everybody Feels... series published also by Frances Lincoln.

Hiccups is newly published this month so watch out for it on line and in the bookshops, or you can buy direct through this picture link

Holly has a great way to show feelings in the characters and this story which follow Oscar the puppy's problem with hiccups that just won't go away, that is until Ruby dresses up as a cat. This is so scary that even the brave Oscar is scared!

Holly is an author/illustrator to watch, she has already won a number of awards, and was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal 2016.

Read an interview with Holly on Quarto Kids Blog, and on Holly's blogspot you can read about some interesting work with Michael Rosen.

We recommend Hiccups for all young children and for reading with parents too, you never know it may just be a long lasting cure for hiccups itself.
