What Dog Knows

By Sylvia Vanden Heede, illustrated by Marije Tolman


What Dog Knows is a fresh and funny mix of story and non-fiction that covers the touchstones of childhood obsession: robots, knights, dinosaurs, rockets and more.

Already the winner of the Dutch Flag and Pennant Award 2015, What Dog Knows is the must-have illustrated chapter book for young readers.



This is Wolf.



And this is Dog.


When Wolf finds a fact-filled book in the library, he thinks he will at last outsmart his clever cousin Dog.


Who knows more about robots, dragons, knights, and pirates?


And what about setting traps, playing tricks, chewing bones and mummifying cats?


What Dog Knows is packed with adventure, information and activities, as well as curious conversations between Wolf and Dog.


"Put What Dog Knows in the hands of all the young readers you know. Not only will they be entertained, they'll learn a thing or two along the way." –Zac McCallum


"An engaging mix of rich, funny character-driven dialogue, and fact-driven (yet still funny) informational sections." –Sarah Forster, Booksellers NZ
