Poor Louie

By Tony Fucile
Illustrated by Tony Fucile

Poor Louie! Life is perfect for this pup until Mum’s belly starts getting bigger...

From the illustrator of the Bink & Gollie series comes a funny, touching tale for big siblings. Louie’s life is great! A walk every morning, ice cream on Sundays, snuggling in bed at night with Mum and Dad. Even meeting up with Mum’s friends – despite their little crawling creatures who pull Louie’s ears – aren’t all that bad. But then things get weird – cold food on the floor, no room in the bed, and lots of new stuff coming into the house in pairs: two small beds, two little jumpers, a two-seated buggy. Does that bode double trouble ahead, or could there be a happier surprise in store for Louie?

  • A humorous, sensitive look at sibling displacement, told through the eyes of a Chihuahua dog
  • With perfect visual pacing, Tony Fucile takes a familiar story and gives it a comic spin
  • A story inspired by Tony's real-life experience
