I don’t want a posh dog! – Children’s book Review

I don’t want a posh dog! by Emma Dodd


Talented author / illustrator Emma Dodd has capture my attention with yet another book of fun filled pages of dog characters, the other book Dog’s Colorful Day.

Dodd reminds us that dogs are our best friends and when one finds YOU the love never stops coming. Personalities are very important when you’re looking for a life long friend; the tilt of the head, the action in the legs, small shifty eyes and small dependant bodies are usually a good sign of what that dog may be like.

Dodd captures the characteristics of well known breeds of dogs by certain gestures but she most importantly captured our heart when the right dog snuggles into a little girls life.

You can’t always judge a book by it’s cover, just like you can’t always judge a dog by it’s fur, but you can ALWAYS tell when you are LOVED and that is when you know you have found the right dog.

The illustrations are simple and bright, and to the point as the word descriptions. Dodd has cleverly illustrated texture for the itchy dog with zigzag lines and bright alert eyes, definitely a dog needing special care.

If you know of a child wanting a pet dog, I would strongly recommend getting this book.


About artist and illustrator

I'm a textile artist, resourceful and excited about making things. Dog walks with my pooch "Charlie" is inspiring and an opportunity to develop ideas from nature and people whom we meet on our strolls. There is a story behind my art making, it's in the series, I don't make just one but many from the same idea, but! not one will look like the other, each piece of art is "one-of-a-kind".

  1. Love the theme of this book. Like “when a dog finds you the love never ends..’

  2. Well I used a coment you made and said “ends” instead of “never stops coming.”

  3. Oh, thank you. That does sound much better. Thanks for the insight.
