French-born illustrating brothers, Yann and Gwendal Le Bec, extended Yann’s Dog Days’ exhibition to create ‘Raymond‘. Raymond is an ordinary dog, who, for a while, led an extraordinary life. Despite being happy, good and within a loving family who ‘scratched behind his ears in just the right place’ Raymond considers his possibilities. The possibilities progress from a life on two legs, into ‘cappuccino- and- cupcake Saturdays’, cinema and his own magazine subscription. Ultimately, Raymond becomes captive to his fast-paced, dazzling career. Is this what he wants? What about his family?
The opportunity to philosophise and discuss are ample in this clever, meaningful picture book. We suggest it hits the spot for the full reading community- family and classroom. We love ‘Raymond‘ and urge you to cosy ‘up in a snug little spot’ to enjoy this accomplished picture book, too.
Raymond is a happy dog, a good dog. He is an ordinary dog, who, for a while, led an extraordinary life. You will not doggone believe it. Read ‘Raymond‘ to discover his pawsome path to prestige. We recommend ‘Raymond‘ to readers all ages, from 6 or 7 years.
