A Boy, a Dog and a Flea with Andy Mulligan

Part of Imagine Children's Festival

Join author Andy Mulligan for an interactive reading of this intriguing tale of a boy, his dog and a flea.

When Tom gets a puppy and calls it Spider, it changes both their lives. Tom finally has a special friend all of his own – just what he needs as he struggles with a difficult new school and trouble at home. And Spider has someone to love him. But the course of their love doesn’t run entirely smooth as they embark on a gruelling journey of separation and reunion.

Join author Andy Mulligan, whose novel Trash was shortlisted for the 2012 CILIP Carnegie Medal, for this reading and discussion.

Dog is a book about trust, standing up for yourself, and learning to love. Described by the Sunday Times as ‘genuinely powerful and compelling,' It is a story that will delight readers young and old.

The event involves a reading and discussion from Andy Mulligan followed by a Q&A and book signing.
