A camel with unusual skills stars in this imaginative new adventure tale released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “The Thirsty Camel” by Peter McDonald.

A magical satchel saves his life more than once, producing miracles tailor-made for each situation that emerges.

It’s a rare camel who likes to lead a caravan, but that’s just what the Thirsty Camel likes to do. When the scruffy-looking animal loses his caravan in a horrible sandstorm, it’s just the start of his adventures, told in this new young adult novel released by Dog Ear Publishing. After a chance encounter with a young boy, the Thirsty Camel discovers he can do things he never could before – with surprising results.

“The Thirsty Camel” follows the curious animal’s adventures, from outwitting sorcerers and thwarting bandits to surviving violent encounters with vicious emirs. He and a friend even manage to rescue a kidnapped princess. A magical satchel saves his life more than once, producing miracles tailor-made for each situation that emerges. And when all else fails and he doesn’t know what to do, the Thirsty Camel follows the Camel Creed: “Heed your hump,” and it rarely steers him wrong. The lighthearted prose of the book’s stories takes readers on a journey of discovery in a desert that’s anything but deserted.

Author Peter McDonald used to tell his children bedtime stories about the Thirsty Camel based on Bedouin adventure stories he heard around a campfire at Saqqara. He hopes other parents enjoy reading his Thirsty Camel tales to their children.
