Dogs can look like their owners! What a brilliant idea! I absolutely loved the concept behind this book and also the fact that the author questioned who picked who. Young readers are invited to help Patch investigate the owners and dogs of Canine Lovers Lane, having the time of their life while solving this mystery.
If you are looking for laugh-out-loud picture books for your child, you’ve found it. This is the perfect story for kids who love dogs and, bonus, it has a dyslexia-friendly font. The choice of font might not seem obvious to many people, but for a child who struggles with dyslexia, it can make all the difference.
Children will definitely fall in love with the colorful characters and their dogs, but pay attention, the story has so much more to offer. They can learn about odd and even number recognition, and there is something hidden on every page for them to discover – I am not going to share what, you will have to find out for yourself.
So cool that the story is based on actual evidence! As the author points out, people choose pedigree dogs that look and act like them. “We choose a dog in our own image”, I loved this phrase and I think there is no better book out there to celebrate the love we bear for our furry friends. The combination of whimsical rhymes and striking illustrations is just perfect, and you cannot help laughing while looking at the owners and their dogs.
My daughter had a lot of fun reading this story! She learned about various dog breeds, and she enjoyed the fun facts and activities at the end of the book. Aside from being a hilarious story, it can help young readers develop their vocabulary and comparison skills. I am thankful for this story, as it helped remember my childhood pet, a German shepherd called Ralph and the beautiful memories of him and my dad. Great job!
It is so funny and beautifully illustrated, as well as spot on with how much dogs can look like their humans and vice versa.
I loved flipping back and forth through the pages and reading it out loud. Each time just as funny, each page just as fun.
And if you love dogs, and dog people, you will definitely enjoy this book!

I have read this to my class of mixed EYFS,Y1 and Y2 children who LOVED it, they found it really funny. Lots of them have dogs so there was so much chat about who had what sort of dog and how they did or didn’t look like theirown dogs. They loved the illustrations.
As a teacher I love a great book that offers lots of learning opportunities. I focused on the rhyme and the maths of the odd and even numbers as well as the use of proper nouns. I encourage my children to always improve their sentences with detail so I used this as an example to add the name of the breed of a dog to a sentence to make it more interesting!
Definitely recommend the book.
What an excellent topic and idea, I love the odd and even house number choice and the whole theme is awesome.
I will 100% buy a hard copy and am very impressed with both the story and the illustration.
Very well produced and beautiful book.
Thank you for making it
Growing up I had Irish Terrier dogs who were certainly part of the family. We always thought there was a family resemblance and then started noticing how this was true for other people we knew who had dogs. So the concept drew me in. Loved the illustrations and the questions it asked the reader. So much packed in to this book. From introducing odd and even numbers to lovely geography and cultural references. Liked how it gave the reader the opportunity to use own imagination by thinking who lived at number 4 and which dog they'd have.
