Pita the puppy gets his own book!

Do you remember the story of the abandoned puppy I rescued? Here’s the start of the story.

Now Pita (which stands for Pain In The A*se) has his story immortalised in print and the book will be published in November at the big book fair in Bucharest.

Floss the lost puppy, or Floss, catelusul pierdut is published by Booklet Fiction, illustrated by Andreea Chele, and is bilingual (English and Romanian). Pita’s story is 100% true, but I’ve turned myself into a Romanian family: the narrator is Thea, a 10-yr old girl and her 7-yr old brother Tudor. Read more here.

Ideal for Romanian students starting to learn English (aged 7+), or for English-speaking students learning Romanian, come to that. You can order direct from the publisher, on +40 (0)21 430 30 95, but if you would like to buy in volume, let me know and I’ll arrange a discount (% varies depending how many books you’d like).

Come to the launch at the end of November! I’ll put a general invitation here and on Floss and Thea’s own blog as soon as the time and day are fixed.

Pita-Bertie Christmas update

Remember Pita the rescued pup? There’s a whole chapter in the book about his adventures over the winter of 2015/16 and you can see pictures of him (and read an extract) here on the blog. Fast forward (there was a happy ending!) to yesterday, and the pre-Christmas BATH. Bertie (Pita as was) loves splashing through muddy puddles and rolling in the smelliest substances he can find. He’s a dog. So although his very fluffy coat didn’t show the evidence, one’s nose detected it. So it was time for a bath before going to visit relatives for Christmas. Well done to Vanda and Vicki for valiant bathing techniques, and all credit to Bertie for balmy bath behaviour. He smelled and felt wonderful for the last third of the day – but this morning he and Vicki are back out in the park, so mud will doubtless be clinging to his fur once more.
