Revenge of the Dogs

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
A spooky, fictional story for ages 10+ about three men and their unwanted hunting dogs.
Pig hunters, Jim, Digger and Isaac, like most serious hunters, owned dogs that knew what to do, whether by instinct or through training. Every once in a while, a dog failed to fulfil its role, and if not suitable as a pet, the dog was put down. Things, however, would come back to bite the men in the butt.

About Marion Day

Marin Day lives in the remote Pelorus Sound in the picturesque Marlborough Sounds of New Zealand. Her passion is writing, her love gardening and nature. Gazing from her window she sees carpeted mountains that anchor their bums into the inland sea. Three main mountains stand sentinel: Stokes (Poro-rangi – the end of the sky) centre, Kiwi to its left and Manaroa right. Then there are her residents – the oystercatcher pair screeching their headlong high sounds, two wild black swans gliding like king and queen up a sea-feeding stream. Black shags submarine the bay. Blue heron blend in an overcast sky. A rare kotuku contemplates the lightly ruffled water. And there are her land-abiding landlords – kereru, tūī and weka to name a few.

Nature has inspired her children’s picture book series (print books) – Spiny Sebastian Starfish, Black Shag and The Little Feijoa Tree (shortlisted in the New Zealand Joy Cowley Text Awards), and Pepe & Tute, the story of a rare tussock New Zealand butterfly, the forest ringlet illustrated by New Zealand wildlife artist Anna Evans.

Marion has won adult and children’s short story competitions. She has children’s and adult’s stories in anthologies. One of her pre-teen stories has been included in the ESA’s New Zealand textbook for secondary school students - Level 1 Literacy Learning Workbook. Another success was as winner of the National Rural Women’s/Ministry of Primary Industry’s short story and photographic competition, which saw her in Parliament to accept her award. Marion sometimes dabbles in poetry. One of her poems can be seen in the prestigious Bird Words: New Zealand Writers on Birds. (Published Penguin Random House). Marion also blogs on her website.

Review by: Valerie on May 31, 2015 :
REVENGE OF THE DOGS –

One of Marion’s best so far. The imagery in this one stayed with me through the night. It is beyond awesome and filled with scary, terrifying, and all too real horror of angry dogs out for revenge. I would enthusiastically recommend this story to everyone, both young and old.
