About the book

"Gorgeous Illustrations of dog life by an idyllic Swedish beach...
a gentle tale, the text comes across as inspired...
A book that can grow with a child."
-The Guardian Children's Books August 2014

The book series was initially inspired by a move from the busy bustling streets of North London to a small forest on a nature reserve by the beautiful beaches of southern Sweden. The Hounds of Falsterbo is a lovingly illustrated collection of tales following three dogs who live their days out in the idyllic setting of white beaches, sand dunes and crystal clear shorelines of Falsterbo. The ever changing scenery of the seasons provides a natural backdrop for adventure and discovery and a simplicity of life which should neither be lost nor forgotten in this digital age. So grab your wellington boots, switch off your devices and take a wander down on the beach with The Hounds of Falsterbo.......

"They live lives of furry princes
But little do they know,
How rich is their existence
As the Hounds of Falsterbo"


Meet The Dogs

"Named Nalle, Buster, Teddy
Their intentions are to play,
To sniff and roll and rumble
Adventures never far away."
