Me, Teddy

Chris McKimmie
Allen & Unwin
ISBN: 9781760291334
RRP: $29.99

Teddy is a real black Labrador belonging to the author-illustrator’s family. Teddy likes to chew and has eclectic tastes. He likes his walkies and Brisbane locals will recognise some of his favourite places. Then there is the unabashed, unconditional loyalty and love from all sides of the family. The illustrations are chaotic and quirky, much in the style of Teddy’s outlook on life. Multimedia scraps, some contributed from the McKimmie family, scatter across the pages something like the parts of a room once a big dog has tail-wagged through. Perfect reading for a dog family.
