Bibliophile Dog loves books so much he decides to open a bookshop. After much unwrapping and unpacking, he throws open the doors and waits for customers…but sadly, there aren’t very many of them. Beginning to feel glum, Dog decides to read something, for ‘when he read, he forgot that he was alone’. Deeply absorbed in an adventure, he looks up, startled to see a customer! But because he’s read all the books, he knows exactly what to recommend – after all one of the nicest things about books is sharing them! With an engaging hero and simple, understated text animated by witty, subtly coloured illustrations, this book about the sheer pleasure of books has a refreshing jaunty elegance – and great endpapers!
