Little Mabel Wins

Illustrated by Timothy Jacques

‘What is Crufts?’ wonders Little Mabel.

‘A show for breed dogs like me,’ sneers snooty Apricot the Afghan next door, ‘not for dreadful little mongrels like you.’

But Mabel’s fat Dad has other ideas – he plans to take the heart of doggy snobbery by storm.

With guile and chocolate drops he decides to destroy the stronghold of the smugly beautiful breed dogs with one monster stroke. However, it is his good little daughter Mabel who wins the hearts and prizes in the end. But not before she and her Dad have turned the world’s greatest dog show upside down.
