The under-six crowd tend to love an animal book and this one is bound to be a winner.
Bigsy is a farm dog – but he doesn’t fit the stereotype.
He has short legs and a long body (his dad is a sausage dog) and plenty of chutzpah.
He’ll take on cockatoos and the kangaroos, barking playfully at them as they run away.
He’ll talk to the horses and the chooks.
He’ll chase the sheep and the ducks and try to move the cows and pigs – but the pig will chase him instead.
He’s a funny little dog full of attitude.
Alison Lester is, of course, Australia’s master teller of tales that evoke home and peace and comfort. Bigsy fits right in with her other books.
Naturally the pictures are warm and cheerful – they're light and full of movement. The words too are happy and easy to read. And there’s more!
