What did you like about the book? Classic writer and illustrator John Burningham writes a new book about Miles, the dog who is a little different from most dogs. He doesn’t like taking walks, eating his food, being with other dogs or coming when called. His only enjoyment is going on rides in a car. When a neighbor makes Miles his own car, he is finally happy. And when his friend Norman needs a ride to school one day, Miles and Norman realize that taking trips in the car together is just the adventure they need. Illustrated in the recognizable John Burningham style this book is both a pleasure to look at and a pleasure to read.
