Author(s): Kate Prendergast
Dog On A Digger is a wonderful, wordless picture book, readers are drawn in to narrate. Dog is helping his master on the building site when his little friend goes missing. Plucky Dog takes charge and cleverly brings the digger to the rescue. A winning combination of charming animals and meticulously drawn machinery.
Reviews for Dog On A Digger: "Another brilliant, wordless book from Kate Prendergast and a book to treasure for the drawing skill and the compelling story. Will be loved by everyone from three to 133". The Bookbag; Reviews for Dog On A Train: "Dog captured my heart as soon as I saw the book...it is unusual to find an artist who is so good at capturing the live form - in this case Dog and Boy - as well as the cityscape, but Prendergast is excellent in both areas...A story told in great detail but without using a single word. Highly recommended." The Bookbag; "This is a very lovely debut picture book from Kate Prendergast. Soft, evocative pencil drawings tell a moving, wordless story of love and loyalty..." Playbythebook.
