ABOUT THE BOOKS
Peggylicious and The Do Good Dog Clan is my series of beautifully illustrated children’s books which follow the exploits of Peggy, a black cocker spaniel, and her best friend, a Tibetan Terrier called Archie. Together they form The Do Good Dog Clan, helping children overcome difficulties and keeping them safe. The books are aimed at children aged three to six years old.
How will the stories develop?
Each new book will highlight a situation that children find it difficult to cope with as they grow up. The dogs help the child through that part of their life and make it fun at the same time! From moving to a new neighbourhood and having to make new friends, starting a new school, understanding right from wrong, to feeling left out and getting lost on a school trip! The books will tackle all sorts of issues in a light-hearted, easy to understand manner that children and parents will love reading.
Have you taken on board any expert advice?
Yes, I have collaborated with teachers from nurseries and primary schools about the issues that children face and the first book has been reviewed by speech therapists (see Reviews).
Why are the books written in rhyme?
The book is written in rhyme which young children find easier to follow and which helps them to progress with their reading more quickly. Studies confirm that knowledge of rhymes helps children progress in reading once they start school. This is detailed more on the ‘Bookstart’ website.
