Ill. by Amanda Graham. Little Book Press, 2017. ISBN 9780994385284
Wilbur the dog is as much in love with the new twins Grace and Joe as their parents. He becomes their furry, four-legged guardian angel as he shares the exciting days and the sleepless nights as they grow from newborns to toddlers with all that that entails.
This is a charming family story with a soft palette that emphasises its gentleness and which families will relate to as a new baby enters the world of a couple and their dog. A lovely bedtime story for a young reader with a faithful dog who will want to know if that's what their life was like too.
