DiggyDog-200Diggy Dog by Martin Bailey is a book that brings back a lot of memories. It’s one of the first non-reader books Mr Z.

This is a fun story about a dog who loved to dig and would dig up the whole town, before finding the perfect home. I won’t give away the ending, only to say it is a happy one.

The text has a great rhythm to it, with every second line rhyming. The pictures are fun, showing all the chaos Diggy Dog causes with his digging as well as the different reactions of bystanders.

I don’t remember why Mr Z chose this book to learn to read, but he loved it and would read it to anyone who would sit still enough to listen!
