L M Kayabout this book: What the readers say:
This book is absolutely delightful. Whether you are in your early 70's like me or 10 yrs old like my granddaughter, it has everything
Well paced & suspenseful without being frightening, the plot artfully draws the reader in.
Cleverly crafted and without being at all patronising.
From the moment I first clapped eyes on this stunning cover I couldn't wait to read this book. I have to say that one of the things that makes this book so special is the beautiful illustrations throughout the story.
Although this is a really a book aimed at young readers – the story is so sensitively told that “dog lovers” of any age will appreciate the sympathetic story line, and the overriding fear that is felt by both the child and the dog about “The Man who did the Very Bad Thing”
This book really is worth a look, and not just for kids, I see it as a 'grandparent and child special moments book' it will be a big hit with the older generation who want something to share with their grandchildren, and I think a grandparent would appreciate the amazing illustrations that appear throughout the story to captivate the imagination of a young mind
As a crime writer first and foremost, I follow news events relating to real-life crimes. I’ve seen crimes where young children have been witness to some dreadful events, often involving family, and have often wondered how they cope.
Children are resilient. Probably more so than many adults. Sometimes the key to their ability to carry on is to find that special someone they can trust and confide in. Many times, that ‘person’ will be an animal.
I’ve been privileged to own seven border collies so far in my lifetime. I find them extraordinary dogs, so loyal and intelligent. It really is as if they can read their owner’s mind and are in tune to their emotions. Which is where the inspiration for this little tale came from.
It’s the story of Nicholas James Corrigan, a small boy who doesn’t speak. He was was a key witness to a crime when he was little.
One day, when out shopping with his Very Nice Aunt, he meets a strange dog and discovers they can understand each other's thoughts.
But now The Man Who Did the Very Bad Thing is back and looking for Nicholas James. Can his faithful new friend protect him? There’s only one way to find out!
It’s a heart-warming tale, ideal for adults and children to read together and enjoy.
