AT LAST! THE ANTEDOTE TO ALL THOSE FAIRY BOOKS!
The day hasnt started well for Pugman, quite possibly the grumpiest dog youll ever find in a kids book. Hes overslept, theres nothing for breakfast and the rain has made his newspaper soggy. Youd be grumpy too. Then, out of nowhere, a magical and unnecessarily cheerful fairy appears. She offers the grumpy Pugman three wishes. Think you know what hell wish for? You and the fairy are in for quite a surprise!
At last, the antedote to those seemingly endless fairy books for kids, and what a hoot it is.
Meschenmosers delightfully disheveled illustrations are full of wit and mischief and its hilarious ending will have you cheering for our canine curmudgeon.
