About the Author

From pop-up books for toddlers to gritty teenage novels, Malachy Doyle's work encompasses many age groups and is available in sixteen different languages. Over the years he has been shortlisted for many prestigious book awards, and won the Welsh Books Council Tir na n-Og Award in 2002. He enjoys visiting schools and libraries and his colourful website is worth a visit.


Doyle and Brown have produced a splendid picture book about a little runt of a sheep-dog, called Collywobble by his owner Farmer Joe because he is a collie and he wobbles! One of a litter of seven, Collywobble seems to be a loser; his brothers and sisters are all destined to be sheep-dogs or family pets, but no one wants the runt. Farmer Joe keeps the little dog, but has no expectations from him. The fact that Collywobble has the heart of a lion and becomes the hero of the story is not altogether unexpected, but no less heart-warming for that. The illustrations are a treat. Full of pictures of rural Wales in the snow, lots of woolly sheep, and very endearing dogs, they are wonderfully evocative of the countryside and superbly drawn. This is a book all the family will enjoy and will cause a run on sheep-dog puppies in the coming months!
