ABAAD-inside-spreadWhy do you love Christmas?

I love how Christmastime brings out the kindness in people. And I delight in the focus on peace, joy, compassion and togetherness. There is a magic and wonderment in the air, which can especially be sensed by children. Christmas has a comforting and exciting ambience for me because when I write for children, I must enter into the zone of magic and wonderment.

Why is your book a great book for Christmas?

The aforementioned magic in the air, or Christmas spirit, is also known by another name: love. A Boy and a Dog is the heart-warming story of a lonely boy and a lonesome dog who find each other and discover true friendship. A touching insight into the special bond between children and animals, with the universal themes of joy, compassion, trust and belonging. But at its very essence, it is a story about LOVE.
