An early Burningham story about a dumpy dog who is abandoned by a rubbish pit, finds his way to a circus and is taken in by a clown. When his new friend is threatened with the sack, Simp decides to put some life into the act and all ends happily. Although it is good to have this well-loved story in paperback, I was disappointed with the way the book has reduced. The whole thing, but particularly the text, has a cramped appearance which may be off-putting to potential infant readers. However, I would encourage parents to buy a copy to read the children.
