Description

A wonderfully imaginative story about a girl who wishes for a more exciting pet, from Lynley Dodd, bestselling author of Hairy Maclary and Friends. This story by the author of Hairy Maclary and Friends about a girl who wishes she had a more exciting pet has delighted children for generations. 'But just for once it might be fun if you changed from dog,' she said. 'To something HUGE or something FIERCE or something ODD instead.' When Susie Fogg takes her dog for a walk, she dreams of having a more exciting pet. What if Sam were a dragon in a wagon?

Author Biography

Lynley Dodd graduated from the Elam School of Art in Auckland with a diploma in Fine Arts, majoring in sculpture. She went on to teach art before taking a break to start a family. She began to work as a freelance illustrator and collaborated with author Eve Sutton on My Cat Likes To Hide in Boxes. There was no looking back as Lynley went on to write and illustrate her own books for children. Exuberant artwork and bouncy rhymes come together perfectly in books like Slinky Malinki and Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy. As well as being a visual delight, these are some of the most rewarding books for children and adults to read out loud. It comes as no surprise that, as a child, she adored Dr Seuss because of his 'crazy sounds and the fact that he took such liberties with the English language.' Other favourite authors included A A Milne and the fairy tales of The Grimm Brothers and Hans Christian Andersen. Today, Lynley is a big fan of Quentin Blake 'because of his humour and very clever art work.'
