The day my dog got famous

£7.99

Meet Ferris Foster – the cartooning genius (if he does say so himself) behind the AUSTOUNDOG comic (available exclusively in Ferris’ school playground) and owner of the actual Aldo, quite possibly the world’s most average dog. When Ferris’ totally annoying neighbour Destiny boasts about her popular YouTube channel, featuring her perfect pooch, Princess Foo Foo, Ferris foolishly claims that Aldo can easily become a BIGGER internet star. There’s just one problem: Aldo has about as much talent as a teaspoon. Then Ferris and his new foster sister, Tia, accidentally film Aldo doing what looks like an amazing trick – will Aldo finally live up to name of his comic book alter-ego and wow the world with his skills or is this about to be the biggest EPIC FAIL ever?
