Every CHERUB agent comes from somewhere. Dante Scott still has nightmares about the death of his famRead Review
In early 1998 I went to Perth in Western Australia in order to attend the literature festival, and part of the arrangement was that I should go to Karratha to do their first ever literary dinner. Karratha is a mining town a long way further north. The landscape is extraordinary, being composed of vast heaps of dark red earth and rock poking out of the never-ending bush. I imagine that Mars must have a similar fell to it.
I went exploring and discovered the bronze statue to Red Dog outside the town of Dampier. I felt straight away that I had to find out more about this splendid dog.
A few months later I returned to Western Australia and spent two glorious weeks driving around collecting Red Dog stories and visiting the places that he knew, writing up the text as I went along.
I hope my cat never finds out that I have written a story to celebrate the life of a dog.
I thought this book was fantastic. It had a mixture of emotions, at some parts it made me feel gloomy, sometimes joyful and sometimes feeling sorry for them. I really hope more people read this book because it was such a pleasure to read.
This book was really interesting I thought it was funny, sad and really entertaining. I hope lots of children will read this book, because they will enjoy it.
