Fred by Mick and Chloe Inkpen (Hodder Children's Books)

More poochy capers from Mick and Chloe Inkpen as we read the further adventures of "Fred" !
Fred is back! That mischievous but lovable pooch from "I Will Love You Anyway" is bounding up for his second adventure, and this time there's a bit of a problem.

You see, obedience school might have taught this little pup a few new tricks but there's one thing he can't quite get his little fuzzy head around.

What is "Fred"?

Why is it that his owners keep saying that word? What does it mean? And who is the mysterious dog that lives in the spare room - and sometimes in the pond.

Fred isn't perfect...

Oh dear, there he goes again!
...but in this rhyming fun book for little ones, perhaps Fred might just understand what having a name means - just in time!

Even the tiniest pups can get into some pretty big scrapes!
Charming and endearing, this is a lovely follow up to "I Will Love You Anyway" and once again establishes Mick and Chloe as an amazingly creative team.

"Fred" by Mick and Chloe Inkpen is out now, published by Hodder Children's Books (kindly supplied for review).
