About Susan Day

Susan is an author, canine behaviourist, and a storyteller. She lives with her family and dogs, in particular, Rocky the Border collie and Stella, the blind dog. She spends her time blogging, writing and illustrating; training and counselling dogs and being bossed around by the family cat, Speed Bump Charlie and his sidekick, Furball (see Dogs in Space).

Susan travelled around the world twice before she was seven years old. It seemed only fitting that the wonderful events she experienced and the places she visited on these journeys be recorded for history. Thus, her story telling skills began. Firstly, to Rupert Bear, her lifelong companion, and then to a host of imaginary friends and finally to her pet dog once the family finally set down roots in Australia.

Susan is passionate about children's literature and wants to inspire children to be better people and encourage them to follow their dreams. She runs workshops for children teaching them how to form the wonders of their imaginations into stories.

Susan lives in a small country town where there are more kangaroos than people. She shares her country property with four dogs, three cats, three rescue guinea pigs and a very large fish and her patient husband. More about her adventures are reflected in Clarence the Snake from Dunolly.

There is one reason, and one reason only, why I'm reluctant to give this book the full five star rating: the confusion about the realistic capabilities of the dogs, and other animals, in the book.

The thing is, we're led to believe that these animals are essentially just regular animals who do extraordinary things. And that would be fine. Except that they physically do things that there's no way an animal shaped like the kind they are could do. Putting their hands on their hips, for example, is something no dog could physically do... Their paws just don't bend that way. If the animals were doing these extraordinary things with adjustments made to compensate for their physical restrictions, I'd give the book five stars. Or, if the dogs were supposed to be humanoid creatures with animal-like characteristics, and therefore the physical limitations of human-shaped creatures, I'd give it five stars.

After all, other than the issue I've already mentioned in this review, this is an amazing book, with a fun and entertaining plot, and an interesting and lovable cast of characters. So, were it not for that issue, it would deserve the full five stars.
