Firefly Press has contracted Tim Budgen to illustrate Michael the Amazing Mind-reading Sausage Dog by Terrie Chilvers, a funny and endearing tale for younger readers.
Michael’s dream is to go from being an unknown pup to a Hollywoof sensation and global superstar. But becoming famous is no walkies in the park…
Editor Leonie Lock said: ‘I immediately fell in love with Tim’s sketches of Michael, he’s absolutely captured his charm and extravagance. I’m very excited to see all of Michael’s waistcoats brought to life!’
‘I can’t wait to get started on bringing Michael and all his doggy friends to life!’ said Tim Budgen. ‘Terrie Chilvers has written a brilliantly funny story and I am thrilled to be working with her and the team at Firefly Press.’
The book is slated for publication in spring 2023.
