Snowy the Doganaut
PUBLICATION JUNE 2014
Snowy is a dog with a difference - an alien canine, with ears where he should have eyes, and eyes in the back of his head. Can a kindly veterinarian make him normal, even if he has to travel to Pluto to do it? This is a book that makes you laugh just to look at it, and the English translation will turn it into a riot. Snowy the Doganaut comes with a fine pedigree in Brazil and will be supported by what is the first appearance in New Zealand by a Brazilian author. Viva Snowy!
