The Leading Magazine for Primary Educators
This funny, quirky story, about a dog who is unexpectedly robbed of his facial hair as he snoozes, is part of the Collins Big Cat guided reading series. Imaginative, innovative writing is one of the scheme’s major strengths – and nine-year-old Katie McDougall is a worthy addition to the publisher’s stable of authors, alongside such favourites as Benjamin Zephaniah, Michael Morpurgo, and Wendy Cope. Milo’s Moustache was selected by judges Michael Rosen and Cliff Moon as one of two winning stories entered into the 2010 Collins Big Cat Writing Competition, both for its originality, and suitability for the target audience. The results of the 2011 competition are to be announced imminently; keep your eyes open for entry details for 2012.
