My Dog, Hen

David Mackintosh

A new puppy from the animal shelter behaves exactly as puppy’s do.

The child telling this story tries very hard to make everything alright, but Hen, the puppy, seems to have super canine powers of chew, and nothing is safe. Eventually the child finds the right person to help, and Granny’s home sewn, thrifty chew challenge provides an answer that the most expensive toys cannot.

What Hen learns during the story is one thing, but what the child who now owns him learns is another. This book is clearly one for anyone with a new pet, but also for anyone learning about living.

The beautiful graphic style of the illustrations supports the energetic puppy’s story, and work well with the text to provide engaging and unusual perspectives.
