Mal Peet and illustrated by Emma Shoard
AUD $14.99

A powerful and unsettling novella from the beloved Mal Peet, with stunning illustrations from Kate Greenaway longlisted Emma Shoard.

Sandie has been battling this demon since her childhood; the sinister black dog of her nightmares that no one can understand. Though her precious pet Rabbie may have fought back this monster for years, when he is no longer there to protect her, Sandie is forced to confront her darkest fears and the black dog will return to haunt her...
A deeply unnerving examination of fear that will leave you guessing long after its final page.
