A Dog Like That! - Janene Cooper and Evie Kemp


All dogs should be like this!

Everybody tells her how dogs should be, but this girl knows better. This is a delightfully warm story about a little girl and her unruly, loveable best friend.

Janene Cooper had a background in education and worked as an Education Consultant based in Auckland. Her writing was influenced by the experiences she shared with the many children who touched her life.

Evie Kemp is a graduate of AUT University in Auckland where she studied Graphic Design and Illustration. Evie primarily illustrates for textiles using pen and ink. As a departure from her usual medium the artwork for A Dog Like That!
was created using collage. This is her first children's book.
