If you could trade places with anyone in this world, who would it be?
Macmillan Prize winning author and illustrator, Shi-Ti Liao, explores this idea with a little girl and her dog in this masterfully illustrated, humourous and whimsical little story.
A girl and her dog decide to swap places for the day. She stays at home and naps and plays all morning. The dog goes to school and paints and learns with his classmates.
Everything goes well, until it’s time to eat. The girl doesn’t like the smell or taste of dog food and the dog doesn’t want people food. If that wasn’t bad enough, they both have to go to the bathroom. Will the girl go outside in the bushes? Will the dog use the toilet? Or will this be their breaking point?
