A wonderful children's hardcover book called What-A-Mess by Frank Muir. This fictional book is beautifully illustrated by Joseph Wright.
What-a-Mess is a series of children's books written by British comedy writer Frank Muir and illustrated by Joseph Wright. The title character is a disheveled (hence his nickname), accident-prone Afghan Hound puppy, whose real name is Prince Amir of Kinjan. This is the first in the series. It was later made into three animated series, all narrated by Frank Muir.
Frank Herbert Muir, CBE (1920 – 1998) was an English comedy writer, radio and television personality. His pets included Afghan hounds and Burmese cats. The hounds were also the inspiration for a series of picture books about an accident-prone Afghan puppy called "What-a-Mess".
