Nellie Belle is a new picture book by Mem Fox and illustrated by Mike Austin.

This rhyming picture book is for very young children and details the day in the life of an adventurous dog, Nellie Belle. The energetic Nellie Bell digs a hold under the fence in her yard and explores the street, the beach, the sea, the dark and scary park, and finally makes her way back home. The repetition and rhyming makes this a good interactive read-aloud book. The illustrations, though slightly cartoonish, are full of colour and add humour to the sparse text. All in all, a fun book that will hold a young listeners attention ’till the end.
