Bill Richardson has created a hilarious cast of characters and a fanciful story that will appeal to a child's sense that the unlikely can really happen.

When the Littles decide it's time to get a dog, everyone has a specific purpose in mind. Papa wants Sally Dog Little to bark only when burglars come. Mama wants Sally Dog Little to walk with her every morning, afternoon, and evening. Twinkle Little wants Sally Dog Little to sleep on her bed and cuddle up close.

Sally Dog Little commences her working life and does what is expected of her. But then things go awry, and the formality of the Littles' household threatens to come undone when a ghost pirate and a ghost dog walk right through the wall. It's up to Sally Dog to restore order, but the odd nature of the mysterious intruders makes her task an especially challenging one.

Filled with wit and a sharp sense of the magic of the improbable, Bill Richardson's wonderfully entertaining story is matched by illustrator Céline Malépart's playful and humorous take on what happens when circumstances demand extraordinary measures.

About the Author:

Bill Richardson is the author of the critically acclaimed young adult novel After Hamelin, which won the Silver Birch Award, was a finalist for the Canadian Library Association Book of the Year Award, appeared on the VOYA honor list, and more. Bill Richardson has published several novels for adults and is a popular radio host for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Sally Dog Little is his first picture book for children.

Award-winning artist Céline Malépart studied graphic art and illustration at Montreal's Concordia University. Her illustrations have appeared in magazines across North America and in numerous school texts. Sally Dog Little is her seventh picture book for children. Céline lives in Montreal with her two children who love to draw and her three cats who love to miao.

From Publishers Weekly:

"I want you to be a proper dog and bark only when burglars come," says Papa. That's just one of the exacting expectations her decorous owners have for Sally Dog Little in this lively, tongue-in-cheek tale. ("They never called her Sally, for short. The Littles were a formal family. Formal families are not fond of `for short.' ") Her congenial canine existence is upended when a ghost pirate and his dog waltz through the living room wall, and Sally Dog Little begins arfing and woofing at the apparitions only she can see. Richardson (After Hamelin) continues to poke lightheartedly at the prim and proper, as the two intruders "stretch out on the formal sofa where dogs were forbidden and pirates would never be encouraged." Mal‚part's (Theodore the Millipede) peppy watercolors create humorous caricatures of the stuffy family and its unwelcome guests, rounding out their quirkiness with white lips, pencil-thin limbs and pointed noses. The dachshund-esque Sally Dog Little, with her long, ever-dripping muzzle, hastens the departure of the quaint ghostly duo by digging up for them a long-buried treasure chest in the backyard. An unexpected and somewhat flat ending may leave readers wanting just a bit more from these entertainingly odd characters. Ages 4-7.
