Tucker is a playful pup who loves to romp and play on his walks with his mom, but there are important lessons he needs to learn along the way. Tucker Times: The Chase (Brown Books Publishing Group) by debut children’s author Genella Macintyre, with illustrations by Morgan Spicer, is based on the life of Tucker, a real dog, and his owner, who is the book’s author.

“I believe young readers will resonate with Tucker and his antics,” says Macintyre. “I’ve watched for years as Tucker would charm everyone he encountered, and I’ve seen first-hand the joy he brings. I wanted to share that same joy with young readers.”

Tucker is a bishon/jack russell terrier that came into Macintyre’s life and has become her “furry child,” spreading happiness wherever he goes.

Through vibrant illustrations and flowing dialogue, Tucker is gently trained by his mom about the appropriate ways in which to play. He is placed in a variety of situation, in which he is encouraged by his loving mother to be guided into the right way to play.

“Tucker is a pure example of the ability for joy and acceptance to be spread,” says MacIntyre. “Wherever Tucker is, happiness quickly follows, and I think young readers will see his spirit in the mixture of content and great illustrations.”

Tucker Times also includes real-life photos in the back of the book of Tucker and his loving owner, Macintyre.

“I love the illustrations in Tucker’s book because Morgan Spicer completely caught Tucker’s personality in each one,” says MacIintyre.

Author Genella Macintyre is a corporate trainer who lives in Brandon, Manitoba. She is the president of Partners in Discovery Ltd., a company designed to help organizations and individuals improve the quality of personal and professional living.
