Diary of a Lively Labrador
Diary of a Lively Labrador, by Ruth Merttens, uses the recount form of a traditional diary to tell the story of a Labrador who enlists an unlikely accomplice to help him get back into his mistress’s good books after a prolonged period of bad behaviour. The narrative is lively and humorous and children of 7 and over who are not necessarily wholly confident readers will find it easily accessible.
