Author(s): Bruce Whatley
My Dog Smudge, has got really short legs. Which makes it very difficult for him to jump. Smudge and his family have a problem to solve-Smudge's legs are so short that he can't jump into the car. One of the children in the family devises a series of ingenious ways of getting Smudge into the car, but none of them work. Who can solve the problem? Beautifully illustrated, with an endearing main character, this book is a great tool for teaching children how to overcome obstacles. With Whatley's wry sense of humour this book will surely appeal to adults as well.
