Description of this Book

So... Shola wagged her tail doubtfully, if I'm a lion, why does Grogoinsist on calling me a mere mutt? Shola is sure that her noble nature and ambitions of grandeur mean only one thing - that she is, in fact, not a dog but a lioness. To the bemusement of her long-suffering owner, Senor Grogo, she sets off to prove her heroic status to the world (and to herself). If only those pesky ducks, nonchalant cats and tempting snacks weren't there to stand in her way...The Adventures of Shola was an Independent Children's Book of the Year 'Fabulous...will make you laugh your socks off' Guardian Children's Books 'Shola is a charming, short creature stuffed with charisma and fierce ideas, and so is the book about her' Bookbag

Author's Bio

Bernardo Atxaga is an award-winning Basque author of both adult and children's books. His most notable works include Two Brothers, Obabakoak, and Seven Houses in France. His books have been translated into 32 languages. Born in Vitoria-Gasteiz, the prize-winning writer and illustrator Mikel Valverde studied at the Fine Arts Faculty of the Basque Public University, where he started creating comics, and illustrations for his own stories. One day he met Bernardo Atxaga in the neighbourhood where they both lived, and so began both their friendship and their working relationship. They have published several books together since then, in addition to the Shola stories.
