An elegant non-fictional rhyming poetic tale set on the beach of Falsterbo in Sweden. Styled specifically with a hardback fabric de-bossed cover, designed to appeal to the grown up who would be thrilled to leave it out on the coffee table as the child with little hands who can easily turn the delightful board book pages. The mixed media original illustrations offer a realistic yet charming representation of three dogs and the coastal landscape. The edges have been sprayed sand to complete the visual harmony sweeping you away with the three furry princes in a naturalistic, charming and timeless encounter.
° Unique concept and styling. Combing an elegant feel to the books exterior whilst using high quality matt board book the design allows both children and parents to be able to enjoy the publication. The book will not be safely stored away in a bookshelf for fear of torn pages or equally hidden away in away in a toy box due to its garish appearance.
° The book is without gimmicks. Through the eyes of three real dogs the tale encourages the simple pleasures of life, for children to turn off their devices and take a walk outside to appreciate nature and seek adventure.
° The illustrations are all unique A3 compositions combining sketch, photograph, watercolor, oil pastels and collage all produced from life with a naturalistic realism in mind. The dogs were added in collage to create a charming dynamism and no digital enhancements were used in the hope that the nature is felt directly by the reader.
° The poetic verse is written with vocabulary which considers readers from 2-8 years. The rhyming prose enables a toddler to enjoy the text when being read to and the sprinkle of more challenging words will engage a young reader beginning to read poetry independently.
° Book 1, of a series of 5, depicts reality. A map is included to illustrate the island geographically and dogs homes. The further books will follow the seasons by the coast and the dogs adventures. The dogs can be followed on our website and social media.
"An amazingly elegant hardback book which would look just at home on a stylish coffee table, as on a children's bookshelf. It manages to strike that tricky balance between being beautiful yet still appropriate for and attractive to children. A sweet tale - we are looking forward to seeing the rest in the series."
