Brilliant Baxter at the Funfair

Carol Cordrey

An exciting visit to the Funfair for Eliza, her grandmother, Grinny, and their much loved Labrador, Brilliant Baxter. This story’s easy rhyme and vibrant illustrations are certain to delight both children and adults.


Brilliant Baxter at the Funfair is a short but sweet picture book story about a family dog being incredibly protective of his family. It is a lovely story that has the dog rescuing some children while at a fun fair before they all have more fun. It’s perfect for those that enjoy dogs and love how instinctive they can be when it comes to protection. I think that children in particular would happily read this book and look to their dogs for protection in the future. It would also work well to warn of some of the dangers of funfair rides as something to talk through with the child you’re reading with.
