This is the story of James the dog told by himself. His heart-warming story will resonate with readers, who identify with many of the feelings James shares. Like when James is sad or scared, or feeling brave, even when he's lost and definitely when he's naughty. Thankfully, his sad tales end happily, as he realises the most important thing of all: his family loves him, faults and all, just as he loves them. It's perfect for sharing with young children.

Synopsis

Sad Tales for Me A Bio(dog)raphy by James Barklee

James Barklee, the author and illustrator of this book, is an ordinary small dog living an ordinary life. But James is frustrated. He feels like he is the most misunderstood member of the family. His size makes him feel overlooked and he is also told off — a lot.

About the Author

James Barklee’s manuscript provoked much excitement at Far Far Away Books when it arrived in their offices having been found in a local park. In spite of extensive searches, publicity-shy James remained elusive for several months before he was finally tracked down to his home where his family were shocked to learn their dog could read and write. James has agreed to his manuscript being published, on condition that his privacy, and that of his family, is maintained.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
