A CHARMING AND WITTY TALE CHRONICLING AN UNUSUAL DAY IN THE LIFE OF A SHEEP DOG Every day Gus Dog goes to work in the back of the ute with his owner, Tom the shearer. But one morning Gus wakes up to find Tom and the ute gone. So Gus Dog decides to go to work on his own. Along the... way he stops to listen to everything, to smell everything, and to look at everything. He has some fun, gets up to some mischief, ruffles a few feathers, and learns a new word. Eventually he finds the ute - but, as in all good stories, that is not the end! Gus Dog Goes to Work is the warm and comical story of a not-so-usual day in the life of a sheep dog, by the top author-illustrator team of the bestselling series I Hate Fridays. PRAISE FOR GUS DOG: 'The repetition of some phrases throughout lends a sense of the 'readaloudability' of classics such as Hairy Maclary, but with an Australian tone.' - Books+Publishing 'Gus Dog has a comical appearance, to match the humour in the text, and a soft expression in his eyes that makes him very endearing. This simple story reflects on the power of language, while observing country life, pets, working dogs and animal behaviour.' - Buzz Words
