About this ebook

This beautifully illustrated book is the story of a child and a dog going for a walk, told from the dog’s point of view in an easy-reading rhythmical style. As explained by Worzel, an enormous Lurcher with ‘issues,’ new experiences can be very scary for him, although he really, really does want to go on exciting walks. The original and engaging illustrations will delight children and adults, as well as educate, showing them the secret language of dogs, and will help children learn how to walk dogs in a safe and responsible way: children learn there are important rules that need to be followed to ensure that walking their dog is a positive experience for everyone. The information presented in this book is endorsed by dog trainers, parents and teachers alike, and is an essential addition to every classroom, library and children’s bookshelf.

About the author

Catherine Pickles is an author, journalist and blogger who lives in Suffolk with her husband Mike. She has two grown up children who have nearly left home!

As a child, her home was filled with dogs, cats and every stray, broken or rescued animal in the village.

She is an experienced foster-carer of lurchers and other sighthounds. Initially a foster dog, from the second Worzel skidded through the door, Catherine knew that he would be her first "failed foster."

Worzel Wooface was adopted from Hounds First Sighthound Rescue. His mission in life is to eat every shoe his Dad owns. Tolerant of the 5 cats who live with him, his favourite is Gandhi who he considers to be an honorary lurcher.

As well as writing books, Worzel blogs and writes a regular column for his local newspaper. He is a champion for rescue dogs and considers himself a Rescue Ambassador, promoting the joys and challenges of second-hand dogs.

He can usually be found upside down on any bed other than his own, often with one of his Dad's shoes that he's looking after. And licking.

In 2016, Worzel won a Heroes of Dog Fest award and in 2017 he became a World Record holder. Who knows what 2018 will bring
