One day, when Sid the dog is walking to school, he suddenly gets a happy feeling and he floats right up to the sky, in this gentle tale for prereaders by the author of Duck in the Truck and My Friend Bear. Sid can't wait to tell his friends at school, but everyone reminds him, "You're a dog, and dogs don't fly." When Sid starts feeling down, though, his Dad tells him an exciting secret that changes everything. Jez Alborough's painted illustrations show great attentiveness to facial expressions, and his bright palette makes the dogs seem to pop off the page. A DVD comes with the book, featuring a short film of the story, narrated by actor Kevin Whately.
