This time I'd like to share with you a series of terrific chapter books. Written and illustrated by the late Harry Horse, the books are: The last polar bears, The last gold diggers, The last cowboys and The last castaways.
The books' main characters, Grandfather and his independent canine companion Roo, tell their many adventures through letters addressed to his grandchild back home. The story lines are quirky and imaginative, sometimes silly, but always warm and loving. Roo quickly became one of my favorite dog characters!
And then there are the illustrations: done in pen and ink, they are simply wonderful: detailed, expressive and exquisite.
Published in the U.S. by Peachtree Publishers. Look for them at your local library or bookstores!
