"The day hasn't started well for Pugman, quite possibly the grumpiest dog ever. He has overslept, there's nothing for breakfast, and the rain has made his newspaper soggy. You'd be grumpy too. Then, out of nowhere, a magical and unnecessarily cheerful fairy appears to offer Pugman three wishes. Think you know what he'll wish for? You and the fairy are in for quite a surprise! At last, the antidote to those seemingly endless fairy books for kids, and what a hoot it is. Meschenmoser's delightfully disheveled illustrations are full of wit and mischief, and its hilarious ending will have readers cheering for our canine curmudgeon."
