A creative non-fiction book, based on a true story, for readers aged 5-6 years who love dogs.
NZ Booklovers ~ “Author Marion Day tells the Dobby story in a compelling way, full of suspense and hope. It’s a heartfelt story but not overwhelming sad or scary for little readers. The kea are a delight and Day has done a wonderful job at personifying them – the dialogue and way of speaking is exactly what you imagine a kea would talk like.
“Illustrated by realist artist Emma Gustafson, readers are instantly able to recognise New Zealand’s high country. Each character has a distinct personality and Gustafson helps convey emotion through her illustrations.
“Day also includes some cute photos of Dobby within this creative non-fiction picture book, as well as more information about his breed, and the things that make Dobby special. A heartwarming read about the goodest boy and his big adventure, Dobby is a delightful read.”
