I am not surprised that My dog Bigsy by Alison Lester has been shortlisted for this year’s Book of the Year: Early Childhood by the Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) in their annual book awards. Meet Bigsy. He is only small but everyone knows he is the boss!! He lives on a farm and loves to visit all the animals. Once again Alison Lester has written a lovely feel good story about a dog. The illustrations are also by Alison Lester.
