Collywobble by Malachy Doyle

Brave and smart little pup
Review by The Mole

The smallest and weakest in the litter Collywobble is kept at home by the farmer but not expected to make much of a working dog. In the event it turns out that Collywobble should not be written off too easily.

The story of Collywobble is told in simple understandable language for a shared read and important message that even the smallest and weakest have an important part to play in life.

The pictures inside are all cute, sweet and beautifully drawn and complement the story wonderfully. The acid test I like to apply with picture books is would I have enjoyed reading it to my 2 when they were little and with Collywobble the answer is a resounding 'yes'.

A really nice book where story and pictures balance nicely. The only thing is that the cover is certainly NOT the nicest picture so please don't judge a book by it's cover.

  1. This book sounds spot on. Will use it next week with a group of nursery children who are doing a project about pets.
