The synopsis from the author
A puppy’s first year is filled with findings, wiggles and laughter.
Puppies squirm in all the odd places, sniff all the strange objects, lick everything they can and find something to splash into even when we don’t want them to!
This book of poems explores the first year of a puppy’s life, as he innocently falls from one adventure into the next, one month at a time.
Puppy’s first days of life, puppy’s first weeks in a new home, puppy’s encounters with the snow and the waves, with the school bag, puppy’s own take on his duty to protect his human pack… What happens when puppy is full of good intentions, yet his actions go wrong?
From fun and playful to creative and crafty, rhymes are being used to amuse and underline the action. Bringing musicality into the duo of storyline and bright images, Puppy, 12 Months of Rhymes and Smiles promises to be an auditory feast for children, a fun read-aloud for parents and a treat for dog-lovers, young and old. A book that children and grown-ups will love reading over and over.
This book is published on the 31st October and available here.
