The Dog is an alphabet book with a difference - it's all in puppy talk, accompanied by the sweetest pictures of small canines (picked from a portfolio of over 100,000 photos that have gained worldwide popularity since they first appeared as postcards in Japan).

Young doglovers will enjoy learning their ABC's in puppy lingo (and making the doggy noises), and their parents will adore the photos. It begins with a Bull terrier barking 'Arf! Arf!' of course, and ends with a small Cavalier King Charles spaniel snoozing ... 'Zzzzzz'. For those not too sure of their breeds, there's an index at the back, identifying which pup breed goes with which picture.

My favorites are 'L' for 'Lie down' (a curly Poodle), 'P' for the Maltese's 'Paw', and 'X marks the spot' for the Pomeranian. But they're all much too cute for words.
