Hot Dog is relaxing on some comfy bread with a little corn and some fries when suddenly...disaster strikes! It looks like he's about to become lunch. Prepare for a laugh-out-loud picture about this little hot dog's quest for freedom. Boldly illustrated by the brilliant Jarvis, winner of Best Illustrated Book at the V&A Illustration Awards 2017, this hilarious, irreverent picture book is told entirely in speech bubbles and demands audience participation - and your undivided attention!



I absolutely love this book! It is a very simple story, that follows a bumblebee talking to a hot dog, who realises he is about to be eaten! The story is charming, funny and engaging. The pictures are cartoon-like, simple but fun. Each page is brightly coloured and animated, this is a picture book that would appeal to a variety of ages -especially when the hot dog hatches an escape plan! At school, our current learning project is food, glorious food - this book is a great one to share at story time, asking inference questions about the images. It would also be a good starting point to inspire children to write their own story with a food as a central character. Picture book / Ages 3+ / Reviewed by Lizi Backhouse, teacher.
