Tell us about your experience with this product?
I bought this perfect little paperback to read to my grandchildren of three and five years. The younger is a a little girl who loves the idea of the two curly poodles rescuing everyone and having  happy endings while the older little boy enjoyed being caught up with the dogs escaping from their battles and adventures.

What did you like about this book?
All three adventure stories have their little twists to them so expect the unexpected when reading them. It keeps everyone interested.

The two dogs and their cheeky little mouse friend drive steam trains and capture an evil gang. They travel to the moon and stop an attempt to conquer the earth. They even get caught in a storm at sea and get shipwrecked on a desert island. After some help from some very unusual friends, they arrive home safely.

What could be improved?
Loved the book as it is.

What did you think of the design of this book?
This book is nice and light to handle, with easy to read paragraphs that a seven, eight or nine year olds can easily cope with.  Complete with twenty four endearing black and white illustrations which match up very nicely with the story.

Paperback. 84 pages.

About the reviewer...
