Overview

Elsa wants a dog. Dad says that dogs are noisy, messy and expensive, and that you can't have a dog if you live in a big block of flats. But then Dad hasn't met Rod! Rod may be a dog, but he's very tidy. He likes modern art, bicycle rides and broccoli - and he even remembers to flush the toilet. Perhaps Rod is just too good to be true . . .A warm and original story about family life and imaginary friends, featuring stunning artwork with a retro charm and added sparkle that will appeal to all ages.A Dog Called Rod is a fresh and funny book from Tim Hogood, the award-winning author-illustrator, of WOW! Said the Owl.The perfect book for any child who has ever wanted a pet - and for any parent who has had to say no.
