Oi Puppies! by Kes Gray & Jim Field


Published by Hodder Children’s Books, an imprint of Hachette Children’s Group, 2020.

Oi Puppies! is the latest hilarious instalment in the best-selling, award-winning Oi Frog and Friends picture book series by Kes Gray and Jim Field. This time, Dog finds himself looking after a group of unruly puppies who just will not SIT! Not even on guppies, like they’re supposed to. They’re getting a little out of hand.


Luckily, as ever, Frog’s got a cunning plan… And, as we’ve come to expect, there’s a clever resolution and a funny twist.

My son and I love this series and have all five previous books, including the special World Book Day title. The witty rhymes make us laugh and we really enjoy the pictures; there are so many funny things going on. This time round we also loved looking at all the different breeds of puppies and reading all their names.

826906CF-9024-410C-8309-C58B56D0C20DOi Puppies! as with all the other books in the series – has been brought vividly to life by Jim Field’s illustrations. There are so many incredibly cute puppies: puppies with lolling tongues, those with huge ears, and even some with fancy hairstyles… Frog, Dog and Cat are always so wonderfully expressive too!

Oi Puppies! is definitely another must-have for your funny book collection. We can’t get enough of this series.
