Digger Comes to the Half-Acre

A true story about an ornery black-and-white Border collie, who refused to herd, but stole things instead. He manages to find happiness at a new home — once he has reorganized it.

Geordie Comes to the Half-Acre

How an observant, thoughtful, and all too cute red-and-white Border collie pup wins over a grumpy and jealous Uncle Digger. All true.

Each beautiful 58 page hard cover book is autographed and includes dozens of full-colour photos that give life to a true story full of charm, told in little chapters. Suitable for children aged 3 or 4 as a “read-to book”, on up to dog-loving young people, adults and grandparents.
