A warm, uplifting story about a boy, his dog, and the healing power of music marks a first-time collaboration between two former Irish Children’s Laureates, Eoin Colfer and P.J. Lynch.
Patrick has been desperate for a dog of his own for as long as he can remember, and this summer, with his father away, he longs for a canine friend more than ever. Meanwhile, in his short doggy life, Oz has suffered at the hands of bad people. Somewhere out there, he believes, is an awesome boy — his boy. And maybe, when they find each other, Oz will learn to bark again. Illustrated in light charcoal by two-time Kate Greenaway Medalist P.J. Lynch, this heartwarming story by Eoin Colfer, internationally best-selling author of the Artemis Fowl series, is certain to enchant.
As a teacher, Eoin Colfer soon found himself inventing stories for his pupils. His first novel Benny and Omer was a No. 1 bestseller in Ireland - it, like Artemis Fowl, was written after a day's teaching and after his young son had gone to bed. Eoinis currently taking a break from teaching and concentrating fully on his writing. He lives in Wexford, Ireland. --This text refers to the cassette edition.
