What Dog Knows by Sylvia Vanden Heede

Dog is curious, knowledgeable and bookish, whereas his cousin, Wolf, is just plain hungry. Their witty and informative conversation explores topics including skeletons, robots, dinosaurs, rockets and the moon, themes endlessly fascinating to children. Readers will laugh at poor Wolf’s feeble (and unsuccessful) attempts to outwit and outmanoeuvre the wise and venerable Dog.

What Dog Knows has it all – fun facts, quizzes and activities all brought to life with engaging full colour illustrations guaranteed to make learning fun! A unique mix of story and fact, this delightful book with its fresh approach is perfect for inquisitive independent readers. I loved it! Highly recommended for ages 7 and up; a terrific book to share with the whole family.
