A Parents Best Children’s Book of 2019A warm, uplifting story about a boy, his dog, and the healing power of music marks a first-time collaboration between two former Irish Children’s Laureates, Eoin Colfer and P.J. Lynch. Patrick has been desperate for a dog of his own for as long as he can remember, and this summer, with his father away, he longs for a canine friend more than ever. Meanwhile, in his short doggy life, Oz has suffered at the hands of bad people. Somewhere out there, he believes, is an awesome boy – his boy. And maybe, when they find each other, Oz will learn to bark again. Illustrated in light charcoal by two-time Kate Greenaway Medalist P.J. Lynch, this heartwarming story by Eoin Colfer, internationally best-selling author of the Artemis Fowl series, is certain to enchant.
Eoin Colfer is the bestselling author of the Artemis Fowl series, which is soon to be filmed. He has also written And Another Thing, a sequel to Douglas Adams’s Hitch-hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Eoin was the Children’s Laureate of Ireland from 2014-2016. P.J. Lynch is widely regarded as Ireland’s finest illustrator, and is the current Children’s Laureate of Ireland. He has won the Mother Goose award and the Kate Greenaway Medal (twice).
