New stretch target

I have written another story in The Little Paws Hotel series about grief, that has been researched and is ready to go.  However, it is not illustrated yet. If I raise extra funds I would love the money to go towards illustrations for the new book and potentially plan to publish it.

Bring Dudley and Peggy to life for ONLY £12 ...

By pre-ordering these two books you will enable them to be published in time for National Bullying Week, 16th - 20th November.

The story of Dudley tells of an English sheepdog who is repeatedly being called mean names by another dog (being bullied), and the story of Peggy tells of a wired haired lurcher who is being unkind and frightening other dogs (being the bully). 

To make this a reality I need 450 people willing people to pre-order Dudley and Peggy.

A bit about me and The Little Paws Hotel series:


My name is Clare Luther and I write rhyming children's books that have been beautifully illustrated by Maria Floyd. 

Young children struggle to talk about their thoughts and feelings that are part of their everyday life.  These books are relatable and well researched and they allow children to explore big emotions. I have a background in health care and my passion is to encourage positive emotional wellbeing and mental health in young children by helping to get conversations started early.

Maria and I already have three books published in The Little Paws Hotel series (available to buy online The story of Olive tells of a dachshund who worries about being left at The Little Paws Hotel for the first time (separation anxiety); the story of Gus tells of a labrador who worries about going to the beach (fear of new experiences); and the story of Fig tells of a pug who worries about making mistakes (perfectionism). 

Before going to print all my manuscripts are read by children, parents, care-givers, grandparents, teachers, SEN, clinical psychologists and health care professionals to ensure the language is accessible and the themes are addressed sensitively and accurately. I have seen first hand the positive difference these stories make to young children and those who care for them whether at home or in the education and health sector.
