What the Toppsta reviewers think:
‘A wonderful story especially perfect for those who love dogs. It tells the story of Fennel growing up and how she acts like a dog. This is because she has a great relationship with her dog Twiglet. The characters in this book are likeable and the plot is funny and heartwarming. The Tony Ross illustrations are a added bonus to what is already a fantastic book. My favourite character is Fennel because she is quirky. ‘ – Addie, age 7
‘This book is fantastic to read. This book is about a girl fennel who when she is born has a fantastic relationship with her family dog called twiglet. They have such a great bond that fennel starts to think she’s a dog and act like one. Obviously this isn’t good when it come to her going to school and twiglet trys to help her. This book if has fantastic illustrations too. I’d definitely recommend this book for the dog lovers and anyone who wants to read a fantastic book.’ – Leon, age 11
‘We love this book. Leo has a very special bond with his grandfather’s dog and this book reminds me of that. It is such a wonderful story depicting so beautifully the relationship that humans and animals can create between each other. It also addresses subtly how bullying can occur and how to best react in that situation. It is beautifully written in an easy-to-read style with lovely illustrations.’ – TCR75 read to Leo, age 9
‘I really enjoyed reading The Girl Who Thought She Was a Dog! It made me laugh out loud. My favourite character was probably Count Basil, but I liked Fennal too because she reminds me of me! I love dogs, so it’s a five star review from me! (Not just because I love dogs!)’ – Orla, age 8
