Dog had never known what it was like
to have a home. It was all she’d ever
wanted. At the animal shelter where
she lived, she happily watched as her
friend’s, one by one, found families to
love. After a while poor Dog began to
wonder if her turn would ever come...
Charles Hope grew up on a farm outside
the country town of Wagga Wagga.
He studied Arts and Screenwriting
before delving headlong into the world
of educational non-fiction picture
books. He lives with his wife and infant
daughter in Melbourne, and hopes very
soon to have a dog of his own. This is
his first fiction title for Wild Dog Books.
