Siggy Loves Soccer by Brian Frederick
Siggy looks so cute as he twitches and turns in his sleep.
But as they watch him, little do the family know that in his dream he is “Siggy Sosidj” the star player for Manchester United. It’s up to Siggy to rescue his team in the biggest game of his life. But can he do it?
Join Siggy and a multi-national cast of doggie players to find out – in a fast-paced, beautifully illustrated tale about overcoming the odds, staying true to your purpose and being kind…
Children will love the soccer-playing Dachshund named Siggy. Siggy is in his bed at home and dreaming of playing soccer with lots of other athletic soccer-playing dogs. The game is exciting but the score is 0 – 0. With little time left in the game, Siggy goes in. He moves across the field and just before the whistle scores the winning goal. The crowd screams his name and even sings a song in his honor.
When Siggy wakes up he tells Phyllis about how he was the hero. She puts two sausages in his favorite bowl and he enjoys eating them.
The book is adorable and I was a huge fan of the artwork. The beyond-basic illustrations are the star of this delightful children’s book. The dreamlike artwork appear to be paintings of the soccer-playing dogs in muted colors that are truly beautiful.
