The little dog lives in a colourful doghouse in the garden. From here, it discovers its world and has a little doggie adventure on each of the five double pages: It visits its friend the mole and plays with the little mouse between the colourful pieces of laundry on the clothesline. Sometimes it also burrows in the dirt or digs a hiding place for a bone. In the evening, it goes home and takes a rest until morning.

About the Series

Short rhymes playfully enhance children's vocabulary, inspire them to touch, feel and understand and promote the fine motor skills of the very little ones. A sturdy finger puppet is attached to the last page of the book. Through peepholes on each page, the head of the finger puppet can be moved in every image. Convenient feature: The finger puppet can be hidden inside the book, making the book easy to place onto the shelf and save space by putting it away.

The Author

Bernd Penners, born in 1958, is an elementary school teacher and is still engaged in this career with great enthusiasm. With his books he would like to make children smile and show that it's a good idea to not always take things super seriously.

The Illustrator

Christine Faust studied the design of games and educational materials, and logically should be creating toys. But because she would much rather draw (and can sit still while doing it), she illustrates children’s games and books. In addition, she works in film and television animation.
