My Dog Hen - book cover

My Dog, Hen

Hen, an excitable little dog with an appetite for mischief, is adopted from the shelter by a young boy and his parents. Hen loves to eat the curtains, the cushions, and even his new toys - until Grandma gives him something special. Hen’s story carries a wonderful lesson about finding the value in things that are pre-owned. Mackintosh’s endearing new picturebook will resonate with any family that has ever adopted a pet from a rescue shelter, and demonstrates the importance of showing compassion, kindness and patience to animals.

There’s a Bug on my Arm that Won’t Let Go

A tale of acceptance and letting go, this is the story of a girl and a bug told in the first person. A child is bored and has nobody to play with. An insect lands on her arm and she moves from panic, to annoyance, to acceptance until finally it is time for the bug to leave. Language and rhythm are pitch-perfect, a rough and tumble of feelings, memories and reactions.
