The illustration on the front of BfK this month is the cover of Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking-Glass with illustrations by Sir John Tenniel. The book is published by Macmillan (0 333 29037 2) at £9.99, and we're grateful for their help in using this picture of Alice and the White Knight.
A charming story about two small dogs: one adventurous, the other timid. Ruffles, the adventurous one, finds the gate open and sets off to explore. Scruff follows cautiously. Soon they become separated - Scruff returns home but Ruffles is lost. He's nearly run over by a car, gets chased by a larger dog and eventually (but accidentally) arrives home in a bus. A very useful story to inform and help children understand about their world - it gives cheerful, but clear warnings of danger, as well as being entertaining with detailed illustrations and lively text.
