Fearless Sons and Daughter by Colin Thompson & Sarah Davis

If you loved Fearless and Fearless in Love then you'll be delighted with this latest installment about the most adorable, scaredy-cat bulldog in the world!

Fearless Sons and Daughter follows the clueless Fearless as he comes to terms with his new role as dad to five of the silliest, cutest bulldog pups ever.

The usual puppy mishaps ensue and the usual Fearless fears arise as the ever patient, Primrose carries on.
My only beef with the book, & it may be the former teacher coming out in me, is the poor grammar as spoken by the dogs - it annoys me! I understand that Thompson has created his own dog language but if I read this aloud to a class, I would have to automatically correct it. I would emphasise the doggy language but using my 'barky' voice instead!

Sarah Davis' illustrations are as adorable as ever - the impulse to reach in and give those puppies are cuddle is very strong indeed.

  1. Hi Brona-
    You visited my blog and asked "By the by your new look blog also looks great on my phone ( something I haven't managed to coordinate yet) - do you have any tips on how to do this?"
    I pushed the button at the top of the page that says DESIGN, then from the list of options I selected TEMPLATE. The page that shows up has options for changing the LIVE on BLOG or the MOBILE APP. Underneath the MOBILE setting is a little gear where you can customize your mobile settings. I honestly don't remember doing that but I must have. There may be a place under setting for clicking a button which allows your MOBILE settings to appear different that your blog. Good luck.

I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger commenting can be a frustrating experience for many.

Make sure you're logged into your account before writing your comment, otherwise blogger will eat it. I have occasionally found lost comments by hitting the back arrow button.

A recent discussion with blogger admin revealed that the ability to post comments "is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) 'third party cookies', in their browser and on their computer. And, have them check their script filters, too. Third party cookies filtering, in a browser setting, is the most common solution. Filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago."
I hope this helps. Using a different browser for a while was another suggestion.

Thanks to another increase in spam comments I have now added word verification on ALL posts.
