The authors of the BEST IN SHOW series bring you this heartwarming story about a little dog called Patch. Patch is lonely, and not really very good at any tricks. He’s not particularly handsome, or clever, or witty and he never quite fits in. When a dog show comes to town, he stumps up the courage to enter himself in – and guess what, he takes them all by surprise, even himself!

 

All the characters are knitted along with all the hand-made props and sets. There are juggling dogs, singing dogs, circus artists and lots of humour along the way to keep young and older minds entertained. This unique concept in children’s storytelling could only be carried out by BEST IN SHOW team.

 

Suitable for children aged 3–6.
