With the skill, charm and animal instinct to rival Dick King-Smith, Claire Barker brings us this deliciously warm and humorous debut for children aged 7 and up – Knitbone Pepper – Ghost Dog. Readers will be grabbed from the very first page, and kept intrigued and amused throughout, not least by the gaggle of fantastic ghost-animals that come to be Knitbone’s best friends. It’s a humorous, cheerful and unpredictable novel, which will delight boys and girls alike. A dog-book-with-a-difference, Knitbone Pepper – Ghost Dog is great class reading material, a great bedtime book and an all round winner. Watch out for the second title in the series – coming soon!
