Bookbug Book of the Month: Fred

Fred the Pug and his little owner
Category: Bookbug

Fred by Mick Inkpen and Chloe Inkpen 

ISBN: 978-1444929522 


'Fetch!' and 'Sit!' and 'Stay!' I understand them all. Those are the words I know. But what is 'Fred'? Fred the dog may not know his name yet or how to stay out of trouble, but one little boy will love him no matter what. A follow-up to I Will Love You Anyway, this touching rhyming story is full of friendship and tail wagging and will touch a chord with all children who love pets. 


'A sequel to I Will Love You Anyway, this is an equally charming story featuring the same naughty puppy who is learning words but struggles to understand that 'Fred' is his name. The dynamic adventures of a little dog and his little human friend are presented to us through engaging rhyme, highly likely to bring a big smile to you little one's face'.
