It's lovely to see another of John Burningham's classic stories re-published in a high-quality paperback edition. After the re-issue of Borka, this story of the little black dog, Simp, who finds fulfilment in a very unusual role with a circus, continues to show how well the simple but satisfying style of Burningham lasts. More boldly illustrated than some of his later work, this is an ideal read-aloud or for young fluent readers to try for themselves.
