Shnipp the dog loves to play fetch with Julie and Lara in the park, but she doesn't love their annoying laughs. So one day she decides to run off. It's not long before Shnipp finds a new life with Bessie the Bagel Lady, eating delicious bagels every day.



I liked the book because Shnip, the dog trusts himself to go back home on his own and meets a new dog. Shnip loves sweet bagels.

When he was in the bagel van he got really fat. I liked the different dog and when the family found him again.

I liked when Shnipp was fat because he ate too many bagels. The foxes were rude and mean.

It was a fiction book which I thought was funny. I liked the bit where the dogs were growling.

This is a very funny book and I really like Micheal Rosen. My favourite character was the Fox because he ate a newspaper and egg shells!

I liked Shnipp the dog. It made me laugh when his owners threw a ball for him and he used to jump up and try and catch it, and his owners said, 'cooeyy, Shnipp!' I recommend this book to people aged 7-9.

It was a little bit funny and a little bit sad because Schnip the dog got lost in the middle of town.
