Don't know how far I will get with this but it is worth a try.

When I was a little girl I used to have a picture book (one of those big, thin ones which each page is a picture with the words superimposed on the picture) about a puppy who lived on a farm and all his brothers and sisters teased him. His mother assured him "I love you just the way you are" (possibly not in those words - but I associate the memory of the book with the Billy Joel song!)

It is a lovely book and I'd love to be able to read it to my DS but my mum doesn't have it any more and wasn't sure she remembered the title. I have had a search on amazon but can't find anything.

Any ideas? Oh, if it helps, it would have been first published early 1990s at the latest.

Sorry, no clues... sounds lovely though. Hope you find it.

Was the puppy called 'Chester'?

Try Abe Books' 'Book Sleuth' Forum. The geniuses there tracked down a book I was looking for based on a description and the forename of the author! It's at [[http://forums.abebooks.co.uk/abesleuthuk]. (Remember to post in the Children's section).
