The antidote to every cute fairy book
 
The day hasn't started well for Pugman, quite possibly the grumpiest dog ever. He has overslept, there's nothing for breakfast, and the rain has made his newspaper soggy. You'd be grumpy too. Then, out of nowhere, a magical and unnecessarily cheerful fairy appears to offer Pugman three wishes. Think you know what he'll wish for? You and the fairy are in for quite a surprise! At last, the antidote to those seemingly endless fairy books for kids, and what a hoot it is. Meschenmoser's delightfully disheveled illustrations are full of wit and mischief, and its hilarious ending will have readers cheering for our canine curmudgeon.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The brilliant pencil work of the author and artist Sebastian Meschenmoser brings to sketchy, scratchy life a charming, idiosyncratic character. . . . These creatures are not slickly cute but refreshingly sympathetic. They do not ask to be admired. They look as if they need a hairbrush—and a cup of hot chocolate."  —New York Times on Waiting for Winter

"The illustrations are deftly drawn in colored pencils, complete with sketching lines that give the renderings depth and maturity. . . . a beautiful title to share with children on a lap or with a small group."  —School Library Journal on Waiting for Winter
