Written by Anna Kemp

Early Years

LoveReading View on Dogs Don't Do Ballet

Nominated for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2010. A fabulous feel-good book about a pug dog with a big personality and even bigger dreams. Biff has no interest in doing dog-like things, he just dreams of being a ballerina. With some delightfully jaunty text coupled with some classic sketchy artwork from a terrific new talent in the world of children’s books this is sure to be a massive hit with children everywhere.

Dogs Don't Do Ballet Synopsis

Biff is not like ordinary dogs. He doesn't do dog stuff like peeing on lampposts, scratching his fleas or drinking out of toilets. If you throw him a stick, he'll just look at you like you're crazy. No, Biff is no ordinary dog. Biff likes moonlight and music and walking on his tiptoes. You see, Biff doesn't think he's a dog, Biff thinks he's a ballerina, which is all very well ...But dogs don't do ballet - do they? The hilarious story of a small dog with a big personality and even bigger dreams!
