    The Year of the Dog

    Dog had never known what it was like to have a home. It was all she'd ever wanted. At the animal shelter where she lived, she happily watched as her friend's, one by one, found families to love. After a while poor Dog began to wonder if her turn would ever come...

    Charles Hope grew up on a farm outside
    the country town of Wagga Wagga.
    He studied Arts and Screenwriting
    before delving headlong into the world
    of educational non-fiction picture
    books. He lives with his wife and infant
    daughter in Melbourne, and hopes very
    soon to have a dog of his own. This is
    his first fiction title for Wild Dog Books.
