The Adventures Of A Dog Called Snowy

David Thorp

The year is 1902. Snowy is a white Chow Shepherd and belongs to Arthur Dell, a well-known and well-connected doctor and his wife, Anastasia, who live in Portman Square, London.


The couple take Snowy for a walk at the same time every morning.


One fine day, in the usual morning walk around Green Park, Snowy is stolen from the couple under their very eyes by a ne'er-do-well.


Written from both the owners' and the dog's point of view, The Adventures of a Dog Called Snowy reflects the experiences Snowy had trying to escape and Arthur and Anastasia's attempts to rescue him.


It's a great book for children and adults, and they will enjoy the conversations Snowy has with the other animals he meets during his adventure.

ABOUT DAVID THORP


David A. Thorp is an artist by profession, whose speciality is in the military genre, although he does accept commissions in all subjects.


This book is something of a departure, but the original story – in picture form as a series of nine paintings – as inspired by a Victorian photograph of a poor lady walking in the rain towing a very wet and unhappy dog along on a piece of rope. Several people encouraged Thorp to write a story around the paintings and eventually he did.


Although painting takes up a great deal of his time, writing seems now to have captured his interest. A fact-based novel about a submarine, The Gold on Board the U-534, was published in 2013, and a sequel is due to follow.
