That Dirty Dog and Other Naughty Stories for Girls and Boys by Christopher Milne

Hardie Grant Egmont, 2011.
Short, quick and funny are the three words that best describe the stories in That Dirty Dog and Other Naughty Stories for Girls and Boys. There are 6 short stories that use descriptive language and black and white illustrations to help engage the reader. Boys and girls aged 9+ will enjoy the humour.
One of the characters wishes his dad was nicer and gets a great surprise. Another character has lost his dad and the author handles the topic with tact and humour. What kid doesn't like talking (and reading) about bad smells? Meet Stinky Adams, the king of smell making! Lots of giggles for all and the quick moving stories make it easy and enjoyable.
