Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

A secret organisation exists without detection and operates right under our very noses. Its sole purpose is to save dogs from neglect. It is manned by a tunnel digging terrier who carries a diamond encrusted nail file. A large dog for which the complexities of door handles are a complete mystery and who, instead, opens everything with his head. As well as, a commando, khaki wearing Blue heeler who is armed with a hunting bone and a smell grenade. And that’s just to name a few! In The Great Escape, we meet Astro, possibly one of the most spoilt dogs in the world, who calls on this secret organisation to save him from what he falsely assumes is imprisonment. Commander Rocky, head of The Organisation, decides to teach Astro how lucky he is by taking him to the one place all dogs dread, The Check Out! However, things don’t go to plan and Commander Rocky learns that below the shallow exterior of a grey shaggy dog is a brave, kind hearted hero. A hero called Astro.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Susan Day

Susan travelled around the world twice before she was seven years old. It was the sixties and the cheapest way to circumnavigate the globe was by cruise ship. It seemed only fitting that the wonderful events she experienced and the places she visited on these journeys be recorded for history. Thus, her story telling skills began. Firstly, to Rupert Bear, her lifelong companion, and then to a host of imaginary friends and finally to her pet dog once the family finally set down roots in Australia. From her Irish heritage she learnt how to tell a good story well and the importance of storytelling in the re-living of her family’s past and present experiences. Her mother taught her that a good story should make people laugh then cry. But if you can make people cry with laughter then you’ve achieved something worthwhile. Susan lives with her dogs, in particular, Rocky the Border collie and Stella, the blind dog. She is a canine behaviourist by trade and spends her time writing and illustrating children's books; training and counselling naughty dogs and being bossed around by the family cat, Speed Bump Charlie.
