"a story that barks to our age"

Does it have the pull of The Gruffalo? There’s a lot less jeopardy and a lot less merchandise potential (The Hundred and One Dalmatians rather created a monopoly in spotty leads). But the rhymes fly, the heart jumps. It’s guaranteed to give children and parents the literary equivalent of a giant welcome home wag.
