There are children’s stories which are exceptionally awesome and you want to read them again and again. Dognapped is a book that falls in that category. This delightful story is about a lovely dog called Misty and her three friends who are accidentally found guilty of dognapping Ashley. If I talk in terms of luck and coincidence then that particular day is unlucky for Misty and friends because whatever happened was sheer co incidence but that co incidence takes them down to deep trouble.
The four dog friends were out to relax and explore on their holiday when they decide to take a boat trip. But trouble wasn’t too far away while going around in the boat they found out that there was a cute little puppy called Ashley that was hiding in the boat. Thus all four of them decide to get back to the shore so that the puppy could be helped but since bad luck was following them they find themselves getting deeper into trouble. But when they get to find out that Ashley is a missing pup and is claimed to be dognapped through via the radio they feel like pirates. All four dogs find themselves in deep trouble as they have to resolve with two problems. Firstly they have to get back to the shore safely and secondly they have to prove themselves innocent. It is a story very intelligently created for the kids from aged 7-9. This is one hilarious story of over inquisitive dogs that go through a lot in a short period of time.
This book was kindly sent to me and my daughter Annabel (who is five and a half) by the author and we read it together about three times and she loved it! I was seriously impressed with the way this book has been written and my daughter and I were besotted with dogs and their amazing adventure!
The story is not only hilarious but it also keeps kids guessing and involved throughout right till the end. I also have to mention how beautifully illustrated this book is too with help lots of vivid colours that makes it one worthy piece of reading.
Dognapped also offers a cute message that hopefully the child would take with them. With half-term just a week away, I would like to recommend this book as not only would Dognapped make you smile, this book would make a lovely holiday half-term read. Get Dognapped today!
Annabel said, ‘Dognapped is funny. I really loved Misty and the other dogs in this story and the missing puppy Ashley was very sweet too. The pictures are lovely because they are very colourful and pretty.’
