Good Boy

Peet, Mal/ Shoard, Emma

A powerful and unsettling novella from the multi-award-winning Mal Peet, with stunning full-colour illustrations from Kate Greenaway-longlisted Emma Shoard.

Sandie has been battling it since childhood: the hulking, snarling black dog of her nightmares. For years, her precious pet dog Rabbie has kept the monster at bay, but when he is no longer there to protect her, the black dog reappears to stalk Sandie in her sleep…

Illuminating the undeniable power of Mal Peet’s pared-back prose, Good Boy is an evocative examination of fear and anxiety that will leave you guessing long after its final page.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant or dyslexic readers aged 13+.
