The Dog That Followed Me Home by Jennifer Yap Caspe is the story of a young girl who wants a baby brother. She feels sad when she doesn't get one as her parents tell her she will have to wait. One day, as she is walking to school, she comes across a scruffy little dog. At first she is scared, but soon realises that the dog is friendly and lets it come along with her. She gives it some food and it runs away again. She realises that the dog was sent to cheer her up. Soon she discovers that she is getting the little brother she wants after all.

Jennifer Yap Caspe has produced a delightful book with The Dog That Followed Me Home. This was a beautifully illustrated book and it told a lovely story. It did have a religious slant to it as the little girl prayed to God to grant her a brother and believed that the little dog was sent by Him to cheer her up. I feel this may affect the marketability of the book with non -religious people. Despite this, however, I think the message is a nice one and I think young children will enjoy the story and the illustrations. The additional guide at the back of the book on how to approach and deal with dogs was a nice touch as some dogs can be dangerous. I think kids who love animals would be attracted to the book and it could teach them how to approach a dog.
