Ruby and the muddy dog ISBN: 9780753406229
Published by Kingfisher, 2001
When the little dog comes to live at Ruby's house, he causes problems. Muddy footprints on the rug, a leap into the pond that ruins the water lilies, and a bath that leaves chaos in the bathroom are all blamed on Ruby's other friends, hippo and lion. But when Dog is assured he is loved in spite of his clumsiness, he can admit his big fibs and be forgiven. The splashy, colourful pictures are a joy.
