{Synopsis} – Dylan’s on his way – are you ready to play? DYLAN THE DOCTOR is the first picture book in a series featuring an exuberant stripy dog, who just loves to play. Created by bestselling illustrator Guy Parker-Rees, Dylan is a joyous new character who uses playing and fun to help toddlers explore and understand their world. Today Dylan is playing at being a doctor. He dashes about looking after all of his friends: Purple Puss, Jolly Otter and Titchy Chick. But who will look after poor, tired Doctor Dylan? All his friends, of course! Look out for Dylan’s friend, Dotty Bug, on every page, as she encourages readers to join in with the story.

{My thoughts} – Dylan is a sweet dog that enjoys pretending to be a doctor. He spends time playing doctor with his friends. He helps to fix whatever is wrong with them and then shows them the love and care that they need.

Eventually he gets exhausted and ends up asking his friends to show him love and care so that he can get a much needed break. They take turns showing him the love and care that he needs.

The illustrations and the words on the pages go together nicely. The illustrations are also eye appealing to young children and allows them to see things in a more imaginative way.

I think that any child could enjoy this book. I read it to my two year old and she kept wanting me to read it again and again. The colorful illustrations help to keep her attention on the story. I think it could be that way with any child, especially children that enjoy books that are colorful.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
