Description

Written by the brilliant Julia Donaldson and stunningly illustrated by the award-winning Sara Ogilvie, The Hospital Dog is a big-hearted tale about a very special, very brave dog.

Here is a dog, a Dalmatian called Dot,
Is she quite ordinary? NO, SHE'S NOT!

After their breakfast and a swim in the sea, Dot and her owner Rose jump on the bus to the hospital. Dot loves visiting the children of Wallaby Ward and they're always pleased to see her too; from a crying baby to a bored teenager - a pat, a stroke and a cuddle with Dot cheers everyone up.

But the work of the hospital dog doesn't stop there and when one of her patients is in trouble, it's up to Dot to save the day!

A fantastic rhyming story from the creators of the bestselling picture book, The Detective Dog - winner of the Books Are My Bag Readers' Award.
