Dotty and Magpie

Dotty is a black-and-white spotty dog. She dearly wants to be brightly coloured, just like the creatures in her dreams … until a friendly magpie takes her on trip to see the beauty and value in being black-and-white.


Further Information

Originally from the UK, Jackie Wells lived and worked in Hong Kong before moving permanently to Melbourne thirteen years ago with her family. One of her dogs is, of course, a spotty dog, while the other is fat and stripy. She also keeps chickens. Jackie has always loved reading and writing rhymes. This is her first book, which demands to be read aloud.
