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.
Oi 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.
Sam’s verdict: I like all the funny names!
Suitable for children aged 3+
