Meet Jack the Nose

nose-adventures.jpg

A small friend of ours was bitten on the nose by our dog. So I wrote him a book – The Adventures of the Very Brave and Particular Nose – which Arthur did a wonderful Electric Bookworks job on. It really looks fabulous – it’s quite a cute little story – and I had great fun writing it. A sample:

Jack the Nose and his friends and family will be at the Book Lounge for a launch later this month – proceeds from book sales will go to The Shine Centre – watch out for the details on BOOK SA.

    So cute! Much better than a kiss to make it better. I hope the small friend (not to mention the small friend's mother) forgave you and the dawg forthwith.

    The mother was very understanding and the Nose was very brave. It was truly horrible for me (not being a committed dog-lover and rather wary of dogs) but the book was so much fun to do - and really nice to write just for love and not for money!
