Hoover the Hungry Dog Children’s Book – Free for Amazon Prime Users

Arctic Circle is my bread and butter, but I have a few side projects as a professional cartoonist and one of them is illustrating books. Usually I illustrate other people’s books (The More I See of Men, the More I Love My Dog; The Oddies children’s book series; The Art of Cartooning and Illustration; to name a few), but about ten years ago I wrote one of my own. I sent Hoover the Hungry Dog out to lots of publishers and got some good feedback, but didn’t get a deal because, though they liked the story and the characters, they thought the illustrations were too cartoony and that there needed to be more texture to the colours.Hoover the Hungry Dog is a great children's book to read to 1 to 5 year olds
