Listen to a sample

Irrepressible young dog Junior is back with a dog's-eye-view of Christmas, or as he knows it, Crisp-Mouth ... His enthusiasm knows no bounds, and it proves a real struggle to be good, especially as Junior consistently gets things WRONG ... Junior's breathless narrative style and Richard Watson's illustrations make this super-readable, and newly confident readers will love this funny story and its bouncy, endlessly optimistic narrator.


The book tunes in perfectly to children's sense of humour and is pretty well guaranteed to have them giggling throughout, at both the story and Richard Watson's entertaining illustrations. Great fun, drawing the reader in right from the start.
