Gemma Correll - A Pugs Guide to Etiquette

Gemma Correll is a super talented and funny illustrator. I've been a fan of her work for a while, so I was very excited when Cico books offered to send me a copy of her new book- A Pugs guide to Etiquette. Upon receiving it I was so happy to see Gemma hasn't veered away from her usual sense of humour. Expect fart references and butt sniffing.

The Pugs Guide to Etiquette is 64 pages full of amazingly cute puggish illustrations. Filled with hilarious rules on how exactly a pug should act to up-hold its breeds reputation. Through the book you'll learn how such well-bred pups should hold themselves in certain situations; from grooming to sports. You'll find out when it's acceptable to lick (Answer: Always) and what after-dinner entertainment your guests will enjoy. The 'Entertaining' chapter had me in fits of giggles through-out.

I highly recommend the Pugs Guide to Etiquette for all dog fanciers and lovers, whether a pug owner or not. I also recommend a look over at Gemmas amazingly funny blog roll, it keeps me entertained daily. Her narrative illustrations has me snorting (the herbivore dinosaur is me all over). 

A Pug’s Guide to Etiquette by Gemma Correll is published by Dog ‘N’ Bone at £9.99 and is available from www.cicobooks.com.
