Add a funky little black pug to some dark Scooby Doo-style hand-painted backgrounds and what do you have: a freakishly enthralling illustrated children’s book. The Albert the Pug rhyming story mixes a spooky darkness with enthralling modern-day fables to make you people wonder, laugh and think about their own behaviour.

The first book follows Albert as he is woken to the noise of a bone-stealing thief dog in his back yard. Scared but undaunted, Albert gives chase. Albert the Pug and the Thief Dog is available now as a book and for Kindle and iPad.
