Dingo Dog and the Billabong Storm by Andrew Peters


Dingo Dog and the Billabong Storm by Andrew Peters

The Bush animals are fed up of Dingo dog's bullying and generate a storming idea to teach him a lesson. This traditional Australian 'Tale with a Twist' is retold by poet, author and storyteller, Andrew Fusek Peters, and delightfully illustrated by Anna Wadham. Tales from around the world provide an insight into cultures other than our own.

About the Author

Andrew Peters

Andrew Peters, the very tall author of Ravenwood, has been climbing and talking to trees since he was small - so the story of Ravenwood has been a long time in development!

Author of over sixty previous books, Andrew says: 'Writing Ravenwood was like being in the driving seat of the best ride ever, especially as I had never attempted to concoct an adventure on this scale before! I have always had a vivid imagination and I love escaping into other worlds.

The challenge with Ravenwood was to write a fun, thought-provoking, but ultimately epic adventure as well as to create a whole new world from scratch: a foreign island of mile-tall giant trees, suddenly threatened by an empire of glass and steel that is hungry for the island's wood. The dwellers of the treetop kingdom don't know it, but theirs are the only trees left in the whole world where wood has become more precious than gold.'

Andrew lives in Shropshire with his wife and two children. He's a keen photographer and squash player, and just can't help jumping in cold rivers and lakes at most times of the year (except when there's ice!)

Ravenwood was released in May 2011.
