Pssst. Want to buy a Little Dog?
No. Not that Little Dog – this Little Dog:
My first ever trade published book has a bit of a sad past because the publisher went bust, and as a result I’ve got a couple of boxes of copies which have moved house with me twice and take up room in my shed and are generally NOT getting read which is, after all what books are for.
So, if you’d like a copy for your collection, drop me a line. I can send it anywhere in Australia for $4 a copy including postage. And overseas, too, for a little more. And I’ll sign it for you, or your child/grandchild/neighbour’s child.
On top of that, I’ll love you forever because you’ll have helped make a bit of space in my shed.
A bit about the book: while it may appear to be called Little Dog, the book’s title is, in fact Doggy Duo, because it is a magic book with two front covers, and two stories, back to back. Little Dog tells the story of what happens when a girl finds a teeny tiny dog small enough to be kept in a shoebox under her bed. When you’ve read that story, you can turn the book over and read My Dog Ate My Homework, about how Jeremy’s dog really does come to eat his homework. Both stories are illustrated by Teresa Culkin-Lawrence and are suitable for primary school aged readers.
