Big H and Little h Dog
Little h Dog is no ordinary dog and Big H is no ordinary owner. What will Big H do to help his little pup's poorly muscles? Where does the Super Vet fit in? And will Little h Dog ever get to chase a ball in the park again?
This heart-warming story was inspired by true events and real people; a dad and his boy. It is a story with heart and humour that gently introduces disability and inclusion and the importance of friendship, kindness and perseverance to children aged 3-8 years. It is a story about never giving up, never losing sight of HOPE, a central theme to the book. Even if you are the slowest dog in town. That is enough.

Val Rowe, a LoveReading4Kids Ambassador
"It is difficult to read this little book and not feel moved. 100% of the profits are going to Harrison's Fund, a charity that is dedicated to research into Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Cartoon-like illustrations are used, together with bold and distinctive fonts that focus upon the visual aspect of words such as 'sniff their bottoms', 'run rings' and 'hope'; this has quite a powerful effect upon the reader".
Darleen Wohlfeil, a Story Monsters Ink, The Literary Resource for Teachers, Librarians, and Parents Reviewer
"This allegorical tale draws the reader into the depths in which love is willing to plunge when faced with daunting circumstances. Big H is willing to dedicate himself to the cause of Little h's need until hope becomes their reality. Those so moved will also join the cause, for all proceeds from the book will be donated to the charitable cause of curing Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. A fun coloring book is also offered for sharing your opinion of the story".
Brenda Klimavicz, Preschool Teacher and Former Elemetary School Librarian
"This book is a valuable resource for teaching children about staying positive in adverse situations. Everyone needs that right now! It is uplifting and humorous and shows how problems can be solved. As a preschool teacher and former elementary school librarian, I would definitely recommend this book. It is a fun read and the illustrations are delightful!!!"
Asher Syed for Readers' Favorite
"Victoria Smith writes an endearing and accessible tale as young readers are brought into the life of a differently-abled dog. Aside from the awareness generated through a story that introduces children, many for the very first time, to diseases that result in muscle degeneration, Smith uses a strong foundation of hope and emphasizes the importance of perseverance...not just for those afflicted and their families, but all of the little future champions who may not even know someone who is afflicted but still will want to help. The illustrations created by Sketchy La Rue tie the whole package together by giving a cute and colorful depiction of the lives of Big H and Little h Dog."
