Little Dog and the Summer Holiday

Little Dog and the Summer Holiday - Corinne Fenton and Robin Cowcher

"A charming and nostalgic story about a much-loved Little Dog and his family."

Eeeeeep!  I hope Walker maintains this tradition of a new Down-under Summer title each year (last year's When We Go Camping is still a favourite).  This one features an a nostalgic Aussie caravaning holiday - how sweet! 

Set in the 50s, a little family and their dog drive from Melbourne to Sydney, to sample all of Sydney's highlights.  Such a perfect little story, simple and energetic, both.  The illustrations are languid, with a hazy summer feel and enough captivating detail to make you linger on each page.  Little Dog and the Summer Holiday captured us completely.

I'm eager to track down the predecessor, Little Dog and the Christmas Wish (for the Christmas book collection).  This one is already a firm favourite!
