A follow-up to I Will Love You Anyway , this touching rhyming story is full of friendship and tail wagging and will touch a chord with all children who love pets - by the bestselling author of the Kipper and Wibbly Pig series.

'Fetch!' and 'Sit!' and 'Stay!' I understand them all. Those are the words I know. But what is 'Fred'? Fred the dog may not know his name yet or how to stay out of trouble but one little boy will love him no matter what. Praise for Mick Inkpen:
'You simply cannot fail to win smiles with a new book about Kipper.' Daily Mail
'The charmingly comical Inkpen, as always, hits the spot.' Guardian Praise for Zoe and Beans:
'These books will become well-loved members of any child's book collection.'

Leo loved this sequel to I Will Love You Anyway with its beautiful illustrations. The pictures and rhyming really reflect Fred's playful and mischievous character as he learns what 'Fred' means. Leo has thoroughly enjoyed the other books we've read by Mick Inkpen and this series was no exception. We found Fred very funny and loveable and an instant hit!

My kids really enjoyed this book. It's about a cute little dog who does everything he is asked but doesn't understand the command Fred. The illustrations are super cute and my little girl loved the dog! My boys favourite part was when the dog realised Fred was his name!
