From author Dawn Morris comes a simple yet endearing read that tells an inspiring story from the point of view of a man’s best friend. Titled Concorde The Beautiful Flying Collie, this imaginative children’s picture book evokes in readers a great compassion for pets and animals.

“As an animal lover who has a particular fondness for dogs, I adored this little insight into Concorde’s life,” commented Dawn Morris’ editor. “I like that he was adopted from the [Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA)] as this may encourage others to do so. I also like that the story is not written about him but actually by him, that is, through his eyes. I think this makes it a little different and intriguing.”

In this delightful book, Concorde, the beautiful Collie, tells the story of his life beginning with his adoption from the SPCA pound. Then he narrates his adventures as he gets lost, found, moves to a chicken farm, meets many new friends and battles his fear of thunder storms.

Young readers are further introduced to a bunch of lovable furry friends. They get to meet Scruffy, the untidy small dog and Willy the cat. There is also the ever-frightful Mitzi, the small black Maltese pup born to Mickey and Dinky. Then there is Lolly and finally Hobo, Concorde’s canine confidant.

With vibrant illustrations, simple text, and a brief interesting glossary at the end, this picture book is something that children and parents will enjoy reading as they spend bonding time together.

This book will be featured at the 2012 American Library Association Annual Book Exhibit in Anaheim, Calif. on June 22-25, 2012.
