Red Dog is a West Australian, a lovable friendly red kelpie who found widespread fame as a result of his habit of travelling all over Western Australia, hitching rides over thousands of miles, settling in places for months at a time and adopting new families before heading off again to the next destination and another family – sometimes returning to say hello years later. While visiting Australia, Louis de Bernières heard the legend of Red Dog and decided to do some research on this extraordinary story. After travelling to Western Australia and meeting countless people who'd known and loved Red Dog, Louis decided to spread Red Dog's fame a little further. The result is an utterly charming tale of an amazing dog with places to go and people to see.

Can we listen to Red Dog again?
A long drive in the car has always been preceded by this question, have you packed Red Dog? We want to listen to it again. It has been a family favourite for a long time with us. We love Red Dog, and we love the people who love him. He is part of our permanent cast of characters in the nurturing world of imagination and narrative.
David Field hits the right note of laconic friendliness that is Red Dog.
