The story of “The Adventures of Bird Dog and Friends” began with me telling our daughter Samantha, a nightly bedtime story about a dog that could fly....the stories continued until she grew out of the fairy-tale fantasy era.
The characters in the book are Bird Dog (Blondie a Golden Labrador; Sam's dog), along with her friends, Bumble Bee, Swallow, Opossum and Monkey. Other key characters are Rocky the horse and Claw the eagle.
The book will capture the imagination of children and instill the values of friendship, teamwork, caring for one another, kindness, achievement and good manners within a framework of adventure.
The book has been superbly illustrated by Australian artist Leigh Brown and brilliantly designed by Top Dog Advertising in Brisbane, Australia.
"THE BOOK WAS HONORED IN AMERICA BY USA BOOK NEWS AS A CATEGORY FINALIST IN THE NATIONAL BEST BOOKS 2010 AWARDS".
