Description

The change of size throughout the story was fun and the illustrations of the dog are very endearing.

Beautifully illustrated, a delight to roam around the details of each scene and a really nice story too - I don't want to give a lame summary but it was a very pleasing metaphor for how your fears can distort reality but how this can be overcome by facing them. It is a wonderful tale about confronting fears and how some things can appear to be more terrible than they really are. At the age of seven, Levi went to watercolour classes where he was introduced to the medium that he still works in. I do get a bit tired of the clever child/ silly adult storyline, I think this is patronising to children and misleading, they do need to listen to adults sometimes, especially in dangerous situations.I see the points others have made, there is some discussion that would be good to talk about, should children approach dogs they don't know? You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. I did think it was weird that the fearful older people in the household allowed the youngest member to venture outside.

These branches are designed to support home learners to access literature-based learning using a selection of books we love from Writing Roots.Levi grew up on Roald Dahl and Morris Sendak, John Burningham, Pat Hutchins, and was obsessed with Clocks, Clocks and More Clocks. As this is a book aimed at small children I wasn't sure this was an altogether good message, there's a massive dog that everyone is scared of so you could be seen as a hero to go and make friends with it?
