Hello Pepi : A Toy Dog is for Real is a small seven-part series about a little dog who exploded onto the scene of Alarna Rose Gray’s life, and gave her sixteen years of joie de vivre.
It is a story about love and friendship, as well as the adventures, lessons and mishaps that come with parenting a tiny dog.
Told in verse, with whimsical illustrations by Kim Sponaugle, it is a series that grownups and littlies alike will love to read.
“The verse is smart, sweet and wonderful to read aloud. The illustrations make me nostalgic for picture books from my childhood.”
“Delightful verse! Darling stories! I think kids are going to fall in love with this series.”
“Pepi is a hot favorite in our home…featuring regularly in Junior’s dinner discussions..won’t be long before he says,’Mum, can I have a puppy too !!’ :)”

Books 6 and 7 coming soon!
