The dog who wouldn't stop barking
The dog who wouldn’t stop barking, by Ruth Merttens, is a story told in the form of a recount, and the illustrations have a humorous cartoon-like feel. Set in a domestic context but with a nice fantasy element, children will follow the narrative and want to find out whether the plan works!
