This is the story of a young boy called Alija, and his dog. It's
a story of optimism and courage in the face of adversity.
I was so pleased when Andrew McLean agreed to do the
illustrations for this book. I think that he has done a wonderful job. (You can
see some of his illustrations by clicking below.)
(The original, longer version of My Dog was published
first in Touchdown Magazine by the New South Wales Department of Education, and
later in the USA by Cricket Magazine.)
