Dog Diaries by Steven Butler and James Patterson

Narrated by super excited puppy Junior, this new series from the bestselling author of the Middle School books is guaranteed to amuse young readers. This is a hilariously honest puppy's perspective on life with his new owner Ruff Catch-a-Doggy-Bone who Middle School readers will recognise.

Being Ruff's dog isn’t always easy, but it is always exciting! Junior can't wait to share all the most important parts of a dog's life, including his favourite places to hide snacks, the amazing Catch-a-Doggy-Bone kennel and his ultimate nemesis, the vacuum cleaner! There's plenty of fun at puppy draining and drama at a local dog show where Junior's future depends on him winning a prize. It's impossible not to be caught up in Junior's world and enjoy his infectious enthusiasm for life.

Richard Watson's comic illustrations complement the story perfectly. There's also a fun essential guide for humans to speaking paw-fect Doglish. The book ends with several fun activities including a word search, dot-to-dot and spot the difference. We can't wait to join Junior for another fun adventure in book two.

Dog Diaries is written by James Patterson and Steven Butler. James is the internationally bestselling author of the Middle School series. His books have sold more than 365 million copies worldwide. Steven is an actor, voice artist and award winning author of The Diary of Dennis the Menace series. Richard Watson graduated from the University of Lincoln in 2003 and has been illustrating children's books ever since.
