Selby Speaks by Duncan Ball

Selby is a dog, a very unusual one. You see, he can speak. Yes, he has the gift of the gab and but he has to keep it a secret just in case his owners, the Trifles, ask him to do chores like answering the telephone or doing the shopping. But worst of all they might even hand him over to some well-meaning scientists and then he’d have to spend the rest of his life being studied and subjected to stupid questions. But when he is caught in a cage with Two-Tooth Tina and is about to be dumped over a cliff he has no choice but to talk. This is an easy enjoyable read with humorous cartoon pictures by Allan Stomann scattered throughout. Duncan Ball has a well-develped website where you can read more about his books and also find out more about Selby the talking dog:
