Ok so whilst I was sniffing books with the delish Levi Pinfold last week he kindly signed a copy of Black Dog for us to give away to a fellow sniffer via the medium of the blog.

Here's a bit about this magical frosty story of wonderment (just to wet your appetite)
Have you ever heard the legend of The Black Dog? Some believe one glimpse of this fearful creature with set the most terrible events in motion...so when it visits the Hope family home, who could blame them for being alarmed?
This is a story about being scared...and about not being scared depending on how you see things.
A mysterious black dog appears outside the Hope family’s home. As each member of the household sees it and hides, the dog grows bigger and bigger.
Only Small, the littlest Hope, has the courage to face the big Black Dog. When it chases her through the forest she shows no fear, so it grows smaller and smaller. Finally, back to the size of a normal hound, the Black Dog is welcomed into the Hope household as their newest addition.
I can tell you, paw on heart this is a stunning picture book from an award-winning and exceptionally dashing illustrator - (fingers crossed for the Greenaway Medal for this one.)
Well what fun indeed - A peachy prize and no mistakes.
