In the big city, the dogs move in highly visible tribes. The business dogs all wear suits and scurry busily along. The football dogs all wear matching kits. The scout dogs all wear khaki. Everywhere you look there are groups of dogs, all uniformly dressed.
But in the middle of the hustle and bustle is an odd dog out. Wearing a woolly hat and scarf and listening to music on his snazzy headphones, it’s apparent that this little guy does not fit in. No matter how hard he tries, he realises he’s just not like the other dogs in the city.
Saddened, he decides to leave his home town to try and find a place where the dogs are more like him. He travels far and wide until he stumbles upon Doggywood – a place where all the dogs wear woolly hats and scarves and listen to music on their headphones. He is so excited because he thinks he has found his place in the world!
However a chance encounter with a pup in a beret makes him realise that individuality should be celebrated, and that life is boring when everyone looks and acts the same.
We love this fantastic story which celebrates individuality and the joy of finding out who you really are. The illustrations are fantastic and Ivy and I spend a lot of time looking at all the dogs, trying to find the ones which look different.
