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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The NHS and dogs; each keeps the nation's heart beating. Trust Julia Donaldson, the
rhymetastic author . . . to put the two together in a story that barks to our age. [P]aired with the supremely talented
Sara Ogilvie . . . whose beautiful, humorous ink drawings match perfectly the bounding words. [T]he rhymes fly, the heart jumps. It's guaranteed to give children and parents the literary equivalent of a giant welcome home
wag.

-- Alex O'Connell, Children's Book of the Week * The Times *
The verse skips along as cheerfully as Dot on her way round Wallaby Ward -- Imogen Carter * Observer *
This is a truly wonderful book. The story is told in rhyming couplets which are delicious to read aloud and share with children. The bright illustrations are full of life, warmth, expression and tiny details that make this a wonderful book to come back to again and again. There's always something new to see! The illustrations are inclusive in terms of ethnicity and disability which make this a brilliant book for all to read * BookTrust *
