Meet Raymond. Raymond is a happy dog and a good dog too. He lives with a caring family who throw him surprise birthday parties and love to give him a good scratch behind the ears (isn’t that something we would all like?). However Raymond begins to yearn for more and children and adults alike will love to see how Raymond becomes more human-like throughout the story.
Raymond eventually ends up working for top magazine Dogue and we see how Raymond really finds life as a top journalist.
This was a charming story and I finished the book with a smile on my face. It is a cautionary tale on work/life balance and I know a few people I would like to share this with! I particularly enjoyed the bright and colourful illustrations and I know children would love spotting the ways the dogs in the story are acting as humans. I particularly love the law enforcement officers!
This is a great book for 3 years plus and is a delight to read. Dog lovers will particularly enjoy seeing what can happen if dogs can walk and talk! Written and illustrated by two brothers, Gwendal and Yann Le Bec, I cannot wait to see more from them. Raymond is published by Walker Books.
Note: I was kindly given a copy of Raymond to review by Walker Books. My thoughts about the book are entirely true and genuine!
