Overview

When you’re a preciously small canine with a big and bold personality, how do you show your doting owners that you want to be treated like an ordinary dog?

The dog in this book doesn't want to be carried in a handbag (how embarrassing!) or eat heart-shaped mini puppy treats (I mean, come on!). And under no circumstances does he ever want to be called “choochie pooh”! If only his owner understood. All this dog wants to do is play with the big dogs in the park—chasing sticks, jumping in muddy puddles, and being a regular part of the pack. From Sean Taylor, the author of Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise, and Kate Hindley, illustrator of Worst in Show, comes a picture-book comedy filled with vibrant art and starring a fed-up pup who learns that when it comes to making new friends, appearances aren’t everything.

Stop treating me like a little baby, thought the little dog. I don’t like being fed heart shaped puppy treats, I don’t like being carried in your handbag, and I certainly don’t like being called Choochie Pooh. But his owner never seems to notice what he doesn’t like. His owner is embarrassing him in front of all the other dogs, treating like he’s her baby. He just wants to be a normal dog. He wants to run around, chase after other dogs, splash in puddles, and have fun. Don’t Call Me Choochie Pooh, is a lovely children’s picture book. The illustrations are divine. They are bright, bold and capture the heart of the story. I love the faces that the dog pulls every-time his owner does something he doesn’t like. You also get to read exactly how he feels with the added speech bubbles. I think the plot is brilliant. I always cringe when I see celebrities carrying their little dogs in their handbags, dressing them up. Dogs are meant to be dogs, and shouldn’t be treated like that. The one thing I would of loved to of seen in the book, was the dog’s name. There are other dogs in the book who are all given names. I also wasn’t sure whether the dog was male or female. I opted for male, as he looked like a male to me. An intensely enjoyable book, that will have children laughing throughout.
