Ollie and Augustus

by Gabriel Evans

Hardback Publication Date: 01/09/2019

RRP  $26.99 $26.25

A funny, heartwarming story about little Ollie's determination to make sure his great big dog Augustus is okay when he's at school.

Ollie was small – like a pickling jar or a shoe box. Augustus was big – like a fridge or a table.

They did most things together, including cycling, painting, dressing up, digging (Ollie's favourite thing) and stick collecting (Augustus's favourite thing). But Ollie is about to start school, and he has one major concern: who will keep Augustus company? He decides to search for a playmate for his enormous companion, but good friends are hard to find, especially for your best mate. In the end, Augustus shows Ollie that he doesn't mind waiting for him and that he can enjoy his time at school, worry-free.

  • A book for dog lovers and kids worried about what might happen to their pets (or younger siblings) while they're at school. 
  • Gabriel's line work and watercolour illustrations have tremendous warmth and kid-appeal. Share this story with fans of Patrick McDonnell and Bill Watterson (Calvin and Hobbes). 
  • This is a breakout book for Gabriel, who has been illustrating picture books since he was 17. He's now in his twenties and has found his picture book voice, with this endearing text, complete with funny hand-lettered asides throughout.
