The Hounds of Falsterbo by Jules Nilsson

Somewhere amongst the white sand dunes and fragrant pine trees you will find The Hounds of Falsterbo. Three dogs on a jolly fun-filled jaunt down to the beach. This elegant paperback book with 32 full-colour pages and wonderful rhyming prose was Winner of the Junior Design Picture Book of The Year 2014 and shortlisted for the Prima Parenting Children's Book of The Year 2015.The Hounds of Falsterbo is something to be shared, read aloud and adored. The illustrations have been praised by The Guardian Children's Books as gorgeous and Junior Design Magazine called The Hounds of Falsterbo '..a modern day classic.' BBC Radio recently described the books as, 'more than a book for dog lovers, more than a children's book...a work of art!' The tale is essentially non-fictional as the author Jules Nilsson was so inspired by her new coastal home of Falsterbo in Sweden and the friendship formed between her own dog Buster and his two friends Nalle and Teddy. The picture book emerged out of love for the landscape, the joy of the dogs and the author's love of the picture book genre and reading aloud to her own children.Visit to view the fabulous book trailer shot on location with the actual dogs in Falsterbo and featured on the Guardian's website. This is a timeless classic and elegant book to be truly treasured. You can also enjoy a musical songbook which has been released with tracks inspired by the picture book. All tracks can be found on iTunes, Spotify and all music platforms. So bound down to Falsterbo and join The Hounds!
