National Simultaneous Storytime - 11am Wed 26 May 2010
From ALIA's website : - "National Simultaneous Storytime is a campaign organised by the Australian Library and Information Association, in which a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator, is read simultaneously to children in a variety of venues around Australia.
This campaign promotes the value of books and encourages young people to read, share books and become involved in other fun and engaging literary based activities. The campaign is an integral part of promoting the value of reading and literacy within Australian society.
In 2009, over 120,000 children and adults across Australia took part in National Simultaneous Storytime, reading the book Pete the Sheep, written by Jackie French illustrated by Bruce Whatley."

Preview from HarperCollins website: - "Smudge and his family have got a problem to solve - Smudge′s legs are so short that he can′t jump into the car! One of the children in the family devises a series of ingenious ways of getting Smudge into the car, but none of them work.
Finally, it is Mum who solves the problem.
This is the book for all those who fell in love with The Ugliest Dog in the World and have been wondering what became of that irresistible creature. "
