It is summer in the sleepy village of Much Moaning. Clang the tufty-pawed dog and his pals, Soot the Greyhound, Twinkle the Great Dane and Bodger the King-size Poodle, are planning a party at Silly Sausage Cottage. It is to be DOGS-ONLY! No humans will be allowed to join in the fun.

To have the cottage empty for the party, Clang needs the three humans he lives with to go to Lord Actually's Summer Ball, but there is a HUGE problem! Lady Esme Her Silliness, Lady Lavinia Her Unusualness and Lady Wallopy Thump have no new dresses to wear. Lady Wallopy Thump won’t go to the party in an old dress.

Clang twitches his ears, whirrs his tail and thinks up what seems to be a wonderful plan to make the ladies leave the cottage. With Clang planning everything, what could possibly go wrong?!

Join Clang and his pals on a hilarious party adventure that you won’t forget! 



Lorna Louise Gray was an infants’ school teacher in West Sussex for many years, during which time she completed her PhD. As a contrast to academic work and encouraged by her husband Bill, she began writing about the adventures of Clang. In 2011, Bill and Lorna rescued two sighthounds. The antics of Patsy Greyhound and Hamish Lurcher further inspired some of the writing. She lives in Chichester and enjoys walking the dogs in the Sussex woods when she isn’t writing, baking or trying to play the piano!

    Clang And The Party by Lorna Louise Gray is a perfect tale to read to young children or for early readers to access themselves.
    Clang is a large dog owned by three rather eccentric women. We witness the action from his point of view. He never means to cause trouble but he’s a dog and trouble just follows him! It is highly amusing for young children as his doggy senses come into play.
    One of the ladies is rather clumsy! Her clumsiness often causes mishaps. Young children will be amused as a falling over results in a flash of underwear – guaranteed to make children laugh.
    The style is a very personable one. As you read, its more like you telling a tale rather than just reading a book. It makes children feel as if they are ‘walking’ through the story. Every now and then there is an aside which helps to make the reader feel included in the story.
    Clang And The Party is a fun tale that is sure to entertain and amuse children. I hope there will be more adventures from Clang and his friends.
    I received a free copy from the publishers. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
