Set on the banks of the Yarra in Warrandyte, readers will recognise local landmarks and enjoy 'walking the map' at the front of the book. The joyful true story of dog-whisperer Mac as he collects dogs of all shapes and sizes to explore the river path. With fresh, vibrant watercolour paintings and scribbly line drawings! 

“Delightful and thoroughly engaging… a joy to read out loud with repetition, rhythm and humour all combining to keep readers entertained… a book that will captivate young and old and become a favourite ‘read again’ story.”

Ellie Royce, Buzzwords ezine.

“Have a look. It’s great. Our new favourite!” Collins Books & ABC Centre, Croydon Australia.

“A very charming picture book.” HarperCollins Australia.

Printed in Melbourne, Australia on 100% recycled stock using vegetable based inks - the colour and paper quality are lush and gorgeous!

‘Woof! Wuff! Yap!... The dogs LOVE Mac!’

The book has been designed to be either read aloud or explored alone. Words and illustrations are layered to create interest and fun for both pre and beginning readers.

 “The writing is rhythmic and evocative, just right for reading aloud and sharing with young audiences. Repetition offers the familiarity that the very young find comforting in a story, while the humour will keep older readers entertained.

Readers will spend much time poring over the delightful illustrations, both the soft coloured paintings and the small black and white sketches.

Jenny Heslop, Buzzwords ezine.
