News Hounds

Laura James, illustrated by Charlie Alder

Gizmo is feeling a little lost and bewildered as he moves with Grannie to the countryside. Fortunately he soon meets Jilly, an enormous Irish Wolfhound, and her four puppies. There follows a delightful tale for younger readers which follows Gizmo and his new friends as they resolve the problem of rehousing the puppies as well as creating the first edition of the “Daily Bark”. Dog-loving children will enjoy reading this story as well as the engaging colour illustrations by Charlie Alder which complement each page.
