SMUG PUG IS TRUE TO LIFE

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS - TIM WIL­LIAMS

HE’S naughty, cun­ning and re­fuses to fess up to what he’s done – which makes the star of the Pig the Pug books just like the real thing.

“He’s ac­tu­ally not far off be­ing a true pug,” said long­time pug breeder Donna McClarty.

“He’s goofy, a clown. Pugs are known to be the clowns of the dog world.

“They def­i­nitely are naughty. I’ve got one eight- week- old at the mo­ment and he’s the naugh­ti­est I’ve ever had.”

Two of Aaron Blabey’s Pig the Pug books are in the The Great Aus­tralian Sto­ry­book Col­lec­tion, start­ing this week­end with the Townsville Bul­letin and Sun­day Mail.

In Pig the Fib­ber, the ti­tle char­ac­ter tries to shift the blame for all his mis­deeds onto Trevor the sausage dog. Read­ers can col­lect a free copy of Pos­sum Magic and col­lec­tor’s case with The Great Aus­tralian Sto­ry­book Col­lec­tion, start­ing this Sun­day.
