Silly Doggy!

When Lily looks out of her bedroom window, she gets the best surprise ever - a doggy! But this is no ordinary doggy, this is an enormous bear escaped from the local zoo. Lily is delighted with her new 'canine' friend and she and Doggy have a fantastic day - told through a 'lost doggy' poster Lily has made. Unfortunately the zookeeper recognises his lost bear from the poster and comes to reclaim him. Luckily for pet lover Lily, the next day brings another fantastic surprise at the bottom of her garden!

About the Author

Adam Stower has illustrated many books for children, including Bottoms Up!, winner of the Red House Picture Book Award. His own books include Slam!and Silly Doggy! and Naughty Kitty!, both of which were longlisted for the Kate Greenaway.


Adam has been longlisted for the Greenaway Award, 2012.

PreS-K-Because she has always wanted a dog, young Lily adopts the runaway zoo bear that she finds in her garden and promptly names him Doggy. She admits that he is rather large for a dog, and a bit grumpy; he won't eat dog food and doesn't like to play fetch. Mom insists that Lily make a "Found" poster, which leads to the animal's reclamation, much to Lily's sadness, until she finds "Kitty" (an escaped tiger) drinking at the garden pond. Children will empathize with the narrator while chuckling over her obvious errors. Stower's gently colored drawings are charged with cheery particulars, such as the bear's yellow hair bow and striped tie "leash." The artist is especially adept at expressive poses, such as Bear hanging out of the bus window with tongue lolling and Lily's examination of his mouth to find a missing ball. This case of mistaken identity is familiar territory, but the illustrations keep it fresh and humorous.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA (c) Copyright 2012.
