THE FLYING SAUSAGE DOG

LOUD SNORTS OF LAUGHTER–CHUCKLING OUT LOUD–SMILES ON OUR FACES

"Yay! Max is back!

Tori & Arthur were very pleased to discover that their favourite flying sausage dog, Max, has returned in another adventure with his young owner, Tom.

In this installment, the nasty pound owner returns with a dodgy looking policeman and takes Max back off Tom, claiming that Max’s original owners had been found and they wanted him back. Tom doesn’t believe him and, after an amusing dream involving fig rolls and corgis, hatches a plan to get him back. The only problem is, this plan involves skipping school and taking the tube alone.

Luckily he finds help from a surprising place and Tom’s plan to save Max turns out to be an even bigger adventure than he expected.

This story had all of us chuckling out loud, especially in the dream chapter and there were some very loud snorts of laughter as the pound manager and his accomplice met their comeuppance. Tails From The Pound left us all with smiles on our faces – just like the first book did.

This series is funny and feel-good, great for young readers who are just getting confident at reading alone and brilliant to share together at story time. Arthur Robins’ characteristic illustrations bring the story to life–I just love the way he draws Max–such a funny, friendly looking sausage dog."
