Dog Did It
By Lynne Garner, Mike Brownlow
This book stinks! It’s full of worm porridge, rumbly tummies and trumping aliens!
Boris loves to eat green worm porridge, even though it upsets his tummy. When his tummy grumbles and rumbles and the inevitable happens at the bus stop and in town, Boris blames the dog.
Phooey! What a whiff! But this time it’s not Boris at all – this time it IS the little dog, but will anyone believe Boris?
The perfect story for anyone who has ever blamed the dog!
