Would you like to know what's going on in a dog's mind? Do you like books told in the voice of a dog? Well, here is a book told in the "quite very actual" voice of Worzel Wooface. And I have to tell you that Worzel's voice is both unique and hilarious. Worzel is a Lurcher living in the Suffolk, England. (For those of us living in the U.S., a Lurcher is a mix of greyhound-type breed and another breed, in Worzel's case a terrier.)

The Terribibble Twos is the sequel to The Quite Very Actual Adventures of Worzel Wooface, Worzel's  diary of his first year of life. At ten weeks old he was surrendered to a rescue group, after having suffered abuse by his owner and another dog. His new owner, Catherine Pickles and her family--including five cats--nurture, love, and help smooth out Worzel's issues.














Here is an exerpt from the new book, where Worzel is learning to stay home alone:

"January 8
Mission Home Alone: Stage One
Mum's had a word about Mission Home Alone with the man who lives next door, and letted him know wot we're practicing, and sorry about the noise if it happens. Fred is a saint, Mum says, for puttering up with being our neighbour. He's also A Bit Deaf, which helps, happarently. Stage One for Mission Home Alone is that you should not do making a song and dance about going out. ..I was a bit confuddled about this at first."

If you're looking for a sweet, funny and insightful look at a rescue dog "with issues," be sure to check out Worzel Wooface!
