As a general rule, people are either cat people or dog people - I am neither. So when a "dog book" arrived for me to read I was somewhat underwhelmed – that is until I started to read this delightful addition that made me smile so much my face ached!
A Pug's Tale is a story of art, culture, Manhattan treasures, theft and … well dogs (pugs to be precise). It is a rarity amongst its type – the silly book that does not dumb down for its readers. It manages to not take itself too seriously although the main plot is actually a serious one. Our heroine, Hope, works in the art conservation department at the MET museum and discovers a prized painting left one night leaning against a wall. On closer inspection she discovers it to be a fake, and learns that the real one is no longer on the wall where it should be. Her bosses decide to keep it a secret to avoid press involvement and discover the culprit themselves but they soon start to suspect each other.
