About this product
- Description'Vigilance is Vital' when you're a Pack Protector. That's why Ruff and Tumble are always alert and on the lookout for Invaders. Well, Ruff is anyway. Having just saved the Pack Lands from a Horde of Goblins, Ruff w uncovers a new threat. Dog Eating Yetis have frozen the world and are ready to invade. Can Ruff save the Pack Lands? And can he get Tumble to help? This is the second book in the Ruff and Tumble series. Each book can be read independently, with need to have read the previous books in the series. This book has illustrations and some fancy/exaggerated fonts to engage younger readers. It has been written as a self reader for advanced younger readers or as a story book to be shared by parents with their primary school aged children (and has proved to be as popular with the adult readers as the children). Ruff (Rufus) is a Scottish Terrier. He is black and shaggy and gets overly excited. He is also a little nervy. He has far too much imagination for his own good and reads books which only fire him up more. He tends to get a bit confused between real life and his dreams. Tumble (Thumbelina) is a Pembrokeshire Corgi. She describes the breed as, 'an ancient, Welsh, wolf like breed, t overly tall, used for herding cattle, very graceful and beautiful.' She thinks quite a lot of herself but is willing to get her paws dirty to do what is right. She acts like Ruff's older sister. In fact Ruff and Tumble are very much like brother and sister: they tease each other, play tricks and banter a lot, but ultimately they look out for each other.
- Author BiographyAs a child I was a reluctant reader. I didn't see it as reluctance, I just didn't see the point: there were comics and a picture is worth a thousand words right? I am now an avid reader and regret missing out on so many good stories as a child. Fortunately, with children of my own, I'm now managing to catch up, reading stories to them every night before bed. There isn't anything quite like a good book to let you escape from the world for a while. True, films are great, but they don't engage you as much as a book. A well written book will get your imagination working, filling the story with colour and energy: a film is a depiction of somebody else's imagination. In fact, I enjoy reading stories to my children so much, I started to write my own. And bearing in mind my own reluctance to read as a child I have written them to be as engaging as possible, to draw the reluctant reader into a land of imagination and discovery.
