Packed with fun and silliness, Barking for Bagels by Michael Rosen, illustrated by Tony Ross, is another riotously funny animal story from the children's storytelling dream team. Shnipp the dog runs off to lead a new life in a bagel van - but what happens when she heads home again?
Shnipp the dog loves to play fetch with Julie and Lara in the park, but she doesn't love their annoying laughs. So one day she decides to run off. It's not long before Shnipp finds a new life with Bessie the Bagel Lady, eating delicious bagels every day. But when she decides to finally head home, she discovers things aren't exactly the same as when she left...
