Book Review – Fizz: “The daring dog detective!”

fizz1Lesley Gibbes has written a delightful new series about a little, fluffy white dog who dreams of becoming a police dog.

Fizz is a Bolognese and is encouraged by his family to follow in their footsteps and become a show dog or companion dog. But despite his size, Fizz longs for the adventure of being a police dog.

fizz2Not perturbed by his size, Fizz heads off to the police dog tryouts and competes against dogs much bigger and stronger. But Fizz doesn’t give up and his perseverance pays off.

There are four books in the series. The books contain short chapters with wonderfully entertaining illustrations by Stephen Michael King. This series is perfect for new readers.
