Description of this Book

'We'll be there in a whisker!' The series follows the first-aid adventures of Dr KittyCat and Peanut the mouse who's always at her side. Each book will focus on a small furry patient who badly needs Dr KittyCat's help. With fun and familiar contexts that children can relate to, lovable characters, and strong storylines around each medical emergency, the Dr KittyCat series has real appeal for the target audience. There is just the right mix of compelling first-aid detail combined with a delightfully surreal furry world. The books share a unique visual identity - they are highly-illustrated in two colour, combining photography and hand-drawn elements. In Posy the Puppy after a busy clinic sorting out the bumps and bruises of the hopeful contestants practising for the Paws and Prizes sports day, Dr KittyCat and Peanut get an emergency call. Posy is stuck is in the agility tunnel and she won't come out! Has she injured her leg? Or could there be another reason why Posy so worried about being fit for the sports day?
