A Different Dog

Regular price £6.99

Beautifully illustrated by Geoff Kelly, this powerful story by Australian author Paul Jennings is already being hailed as a future classic and 'a triumph!' by reviewers in the UK. More of an extended story than a full-blown novel, A Different Dog is the highly original, gripping and surprising story of a boy who can't speak, a dog, and a daring rescue. There is humour too in this moving tale of survival and redemption. We are recommending it for children from the age of 12 upwards - but many of our adult reviewers have declared themselves hooked. @BookMonsterAlly said, 'Honestly, if you wore a tie, it would grab you by it, shake you around, and gently drop you to the floor in a soggy heap.'

All three 'DIFFERENT' titles are available on audio, as a CD or download: you can access the collection from Audible here.
