Raymond by Yann & Gwendal Le Bec (Walker Books)

Meet Raymond, he’s an exceptional dog, a one-off, a ‘bone-afide’ canine celebutante.

Raymond has ambitions way beyond that of your ordinary pampered pooch. This dog wants to break the mould and do things that humans do.

And why not?

So what if dogs could walk and talk and go to work? Well, Raymond does exactly that. He wants to be able to take himself for walks, get his own dinner and when he’s done all of that he wants to hold down a job, of course he does!

And not just any job, a high-flying career in journalism, no less, working for the best-selling doggy magazine ‘Dogue’.

But is this all it’s really cracked up to be? And what happens when he just fancies a tummy tickle or a quick chase of  ball?

This humorous, engaging tale from Yann and Gwendal Le Bec is accompanied by set of arresting spreads, bursting with visual humour and small but meaningful detail.

Use of a limited but effective palette, provides a fitting backdrop to this absurd, laugh-out-loud story and you’ll soon find that Raymond has found a place in your heart.

This is anthropomorphism at its absolute best.

For dog lovers everywhere, Raymond will appeal to a wide and varied audience.

This instantly adorable dog with his big ideas and aspirational lifestyle will have you eating out of his hand before you know it.
