Dog Biscuitby Helen Cooper
Synopses & Reviews
Hungry Bridget ate a biscuit . . . a dog biscuit! It tasted good - salty and sweet at the same time - but dog biscuits are meant for dogs, not people. Bridget starts to worry. Are her ears getting bigger? Is she growing a tail? Could she be turning into a dog? In the middle of the night, Bridget is swept off on a joyous romp with a wild dog pack. She has so much fun - until she thinks about leaving her family behind, which makes her so sad that she wakes up immediately, safe and sound in her mothers arms, and human once again.
Bursting with wild doggy energy, Helen Coopers vibrant illustrations make this one of the most original picture books she has created yet. A recipe for Human-Being Treats is included!

Bridget is very hungry, but because Mum is so busy looking after Bridget's little brother, she hasn't even noticed So Bridget steals a biscuit from the shed. It's a dog biscuit, not meant for humans.

When Mrs. Blair's dog winks at her, Bridget becomes even more worried, and when the Butcher calls her a good little pup she is convinced that she is turning into a dog.
Is it really happening, or is it all in Bridget's imagination?
