Blue Dog by Louis de Bernieres

Young Mick's life has been turned upside down. His father has recently passed away, and with his mother struggling to cope with her grief, the energetic eleven-year-old city boy is sent to stay with his eccentric grandfather in the Pilbara.

Mick loves being with his granpa amid the red dust of outback Western Australia, but things really spring to life after a damaging storm when he saves a kelpie pup from drowning. The boy and the puppy whom his grandfather names Blue quickly become inseparable pals, as Mick tackles the sometimes-unexpected obstacles of this unforgiving landscape with a devoted canine companion at his side.

Told with verve and simplicity by the author of the bestselling Red Dog, Louis de Bernieres' Blue Dog is a beautifully nostalgic tale of a fearless young boy on the cusp of adolescence, his rough-edged but kindly granpa, and a rambunctious kelpie with plenty more adventures ahead of him.
