Look, Puppy!

By Mary Murphy
Illustrated by Victoria Ball

Hello, puppy! We don’t know where you came from. We don’t know what kind of dog you are. We’ve been waiting and waiting for you … look!

A little girl wants to show her new puppy everything in their world. Look! LOOK! Look! But when puppy disappears, the girl realises what her new friend really needs ... and that she is the one who can give it. A warm and reassuring tale about loving, thinking and understanding.

  • A charming and endearing tale of a young child’s first experience of pet ownership and responsibility – its ups and downs.
  • With beautifully observed, stylish illustrations from Victoria Ball and charming words by Mary Murphy, this is a book about connecting, understanding, discovery, and being brand new.
  • Praise for Mary Murphy. “Mary Murphy excels at writing cosy, sweet books which have a hug at their heart.” Booktrust
