Louie, the Chihuahua, loved being the centre of attention from his human mummy and daddy. He got taken for lots of walks, got to sleep in their bed, and even sit at the table with them for dinner. It was like he was a real boy, not a dog. The his mummy’s tummy began to grow, and he was no longer allowed to sleep in the bed, nor eat at the table with them. He soon realised that his mummy was going to have a baby. One of those creatures that pull his ears, and hurt him. Then the news got worse, there was not going to be just one, but two babies. Why else would his parents be buying two of everything, and a double buggy? Louie didn’t want to live in the same house as two babies, so one night he decided to run away. Poor Louie! I loved this children’s book. The story is told from Louie’s point of view, as he tells you about his life, a life he did enjoy, but now his parents are having babies, he has started to feel sad, and that he is being pushed away, and replaced. There is a lovely twist in the book, one I wonder whether children will see coming, and hopefully they will be surprised, and happy. The illustrations are cartoony, with Louie being at the forefront of each of them. They are both colourful, and black and white. The full page drawing also perfectly depict Louie’s moods. A perfect book for any dog loving family. Although it is a children’s book, it would make any adult who has a dog, and is now having a child, realise just how apprehensive dog may be feeling.
