Hungry Bridget ate a biscuit . . . a dog biscuit! It tasted good - salty and sweet at the same time - but dog biscuits are meant for dogs, not people. Bridget starts to worry. Are her ears getting bigger? Is she growing a tail? Could she be turning into a dog? In the middle of the night, Bridget is swept off on a joyous romp with a wild dog pack. She has so much fun - until she thinks about leaving her family behind, which makes her so sad that she wakes up immediately, safe and sound in her mother's arms, and human once again.

Bursting with wild doggy energy, Helen Cooper's vibrant illustrations make this one of the most original picture books she has created yet. A recipe for Human-Being Treats is included!

Bridget is hungry while visiting Mrs. Blair, and finds a stash of dog biscuits in the shed. She eats one. “Oh my,” says Mrs. Blair, “you’ll go bowwow and turn into a dog.” She desperately wishes she hadn’t eaten the biscuit, but by nightfall she’s transformed, and called out into the magical world of dogs.

It all ends just fine, but Bridget is truly frightened by Mrs. Blair’s tease. Bridget’s mom is 100% comforting and supportive when Bridget confesses, and Mrs. Blair apologizes, so I did appreciate the adults’ reaction to a child’s “irrational” fears. However, my son at three years old was really creeped out by this book. We read it again just recently, when he was six, and he found it fascinating. I personally loved it!

My 4 year old son loved this one. I thought it was alright.
