A Different Dog
The forest is dense and dark. And the trail full of unexpected perils. The dog can't move. The boy can't talk. And you won't know why. Or where you are going. You will put this story down not wanting the journey to end. But it's from Paul Jennings, so watch out for the ambush. One of the best. From one of the best.
Paul Jennings has written over one hundred stories and has won every Australian children's choice book award. Since the publication of Unreal! in 1985, readers all around the world have loved his books. The top-rating TV series Round the Twist and Driven Crazy were based on a selection of his enormously popular short-story collections such as Unseen! In 1995 he was made a Member of the Order of Australia for services to children's literature and he was awarded the prestigious Dromkeen Medal in 2001.
