4 Paw Review: Under the Southern Cross by Frané Lessac

Book Review by Pepsi Parsons, Canine Story Advisor

When Pepsi found out her Instagram mate Banjo Bear featured on every page of Frané Lessac’s Under the Southern Cross she knew had to do one last book review.

It took her best eyes 👀 to spy Banjo on every page but she did it!

You can even see the proof in this very smug looking photo!

The verdict? Pepsi gives  Under the Southern Cross a  Four Paw Review  🐾 🐾

4 Paw Review: The Dog With Seven Names by Dianne Wolfer

Book Review by Pepsi Parsons, Canine Story Advisor

I’m not going to lie, when I told Pepsi that Dianne Wolfer was holding ‘Dress Up Your Dog Competition’ to celebrate the release of The Dog With Seven Names, she gave me a stink eye.

But it turned out that Pepsi had lots of fun dressing up as all seven dogs.

Presenting:

Pepsi as Elsie’s ‘Princess’

Pepsi as Dave’s ‘Dog’

Pepsi as Beth & Doc’s dog “Flynn’

Pepsi as Lee Wah’s dog ‘Gengi’

Pepsi as Bonnie’s dog ‘Florence’

Pepsi as Hank’s dog ‘Pooch’

Pepsi as Hendrik’s dog ‘Engel’

So despite the initial stink eye Pepsi is giving The Dog With Seven Names a  Four Paw Review  🐾 🐾

Book Review: Westy the Western Swamp Tortoise by Cathy Levett

Last Wednesday I attended  the launch of a fabulous (and important!) book.

Westy the Western Swamp Tortoise by Cathy Levett is a picture book with a nonfiction narrative detailing the journey of a Western Swamp Tortoise from birth at the Perth Zoo to his release into wetlands at Ellenbrook.

Westy the Western Swamp Tortoise by Cathy Levett

There is so much to love about this book. Not only does the story flow naturally, its also filled with factual information about Westy’s journey.

The stunning photography includes the growth stages of a Western Swamp Tortoise along with their habitat.

As a bonus for teachers and school libraries it has multiple links to the West Australian Curriculum which includes; endangered animals, habitats, environments and animal adaptations.
(Under the ‘Educators‘ tab  on the Friends of the Western Swamp Tortoise you can find lots of information including worksheets to compliment this fabulous book.)

Westy the Western Swamp Tortoise is published by Friends of the Western Swamp Tortoise with help from The Book Incubator with all proceeds from the sale of the book going towards education programs.
