Home Thoughts On Abroadby Malcolm Orr
G'day Reader, My humans told me to cobble some words together to explain this book, and why the cover shows an Aussie mongrel (that's me), in a Pommy garden on the day it didn't rain last year. Well i&tgrave;s an ugly story involving abduction, transportation, and strange experiences in a new home, with my old humans. Read about the crimes against me, marvel at the miracle of Pommy Christmastime and other strange domestic rituals, and enjoy the attempts of my humans to sort their new lives out. Above all, shed a tear for this downtrodden dingo, who gave up a diet of sun and snaggers from the barbie, for plain Pommie tucker in frigging freezing conditions. This is just the book to dip into at beer-o-clock when you sit down to sink a six-pack or a tumbler or two of Tasmanian sherry.
