The Other Side of the Window by Jane Wilson
Mollie and George have very different reactions to watching their humans leave the house. Mollie plays or naps. But George... George worries. A lot.
George and Mollie are two happy dogs living a wonderful life in a loving home with their two humans. At least, they're mostly happy. George can't stop wondering where the humans go every day and decides to look for clues to explain the mystery.
"But George wouldn’t think of fond memories just now,
"With his tail in the air, through the cushions he plowed.
"No nick-knack was safe - he was like a dervish a-whirl!
"And the shambles he made would make your hair curl."
Mollie is horrified as George turns the house upside down in his dogged hunt for for the truth. Waiting in the window for the humans to return, the dogs are sure they're in big trouble.
With warm humour and in comical verse, 'The Other Side of the Window' is a beautifully illustrated children's storybook that explores the ways in which nameless fears can sometimes look like bad behaviour, and how we may need to dig a little deeper to discover what's really underneath what may look like just a great big mess.
Inspired by the real George and Mollie, everything in the story really happened. The dialogue, well... that's probably true.
