Colour Young Puffin: Dumpling

Dachshunds are supposed to be long and elegant, not short and plump like a dumpling! Dumpling wishes she could grow a beautiful sausage-shaped body like her two brothers, and look like a real sausage dog. But when a witch’s cat grants her wish, she gets longer and longer… and soon Dumpling is the longest dog ever! This cute and comical short story is perfect for reading alone.
