When I was nineteen, I lived on a converted fishboat with a big dog that had eleven puppies. Years later, when I started to write Puppies on Board, I imagined what it would have been like to be a child in that situation. More fun than being an adult, that's for sure. I gave Rose Cowles, the illustrator, a lot of old photographs of me, the boat and all those puppies, but until the book was published, I had no idea that she was going to put me in the book! (Hint: I'm the one with glasses!) I love the illustrations—they capture the time, the place and the lunacy (and joy) of having that many dogs on a small boat. (read excerpt)
