The Dog on the Tuckerbox and Little Dog and the Summer Holiday
This morning I was tagged by The Dog on the Tuckerbox on Instagram asking if I’d tag them on photos taken at the statue of The Dog on the Tuckerbox statue, 5 miles from Gundagai.
Having written the story of The Dog on the Tuckerbox as a picture book, illustrated by Peter Gouldthorpe and published by Black Dog Books, I have many photos of my visits to Gundagai taken when I was researching, writing and launching the book there back in 2008.
More recently, Little Dog and the Summer Holiday released a year ago and illustrated by Robin Cowcher and published by
Black Dog Books, has a double spread of the family’s camp site and Jonathan and Little Dog setting up the camp fire at Gundagai. There is also a full page illustration of Little Dog, Jonathan and Annie standing at the famous statue while Mum takes a photo – ‘As the sun dipped behind the sandpaper hills, Little Dog helped set up the camp site.’
