A classic, colourfully illustrated Beginner Book which will delight and inspire early readers. When Sam's new dog learns to dig holes, he can't stop. He digs up gardens, road and buildings, and finally digs himself into a hole he can't get out of. The adventures of The Digging-est Dog will give children pride and pleasure in their early reading. Beginner Books have been designed to appeal directly to children through the use of humour, rhyme and bright pictures that can be 'read' even by the non-reading child. Some Beginner Books are simple stories, others are hilarious nonsense: both types have been designed to give children confidence and make them want to go on reading.

This story was read to me in Grade 1 and I remember it vividly. My parents then bought the book for my brother and I, and it has always been one of my favourites. The dog is so happy and naughty without realising it. Then, he is disgraced and the dogs that he wanted to impress turn their backs on him (for being so naughty as to dig up the whole town accidentally!) When he is very sad, though, and gets into life or death danger, the dogs and his owner (the young boy) work together to save the day, and then he is put to work to happily dig dig dig all day long ploughing trails in the farmer's field. Aaaaah! It's a beauty. And every page is full of colour and expression.

Loved this book as a kid and love reading it to my kids. Great rhyming verses and very entertaining.

My children love this story about a loveable dog who finally manages to leave the pet shop and have a real owner. His happy bubble bursts when he discovers that he has never learned to dig. He eventually tries one last time to dig, just to please his master, and discovers that he finally has the knack. Unfortunatley he gets a bit too enthusiastic and ends up digging up most of the town. A fun read as the dog digs himself into trouble and back out of it again.
