Winston, a miniature long-haired dachshund, wants to impress his friends on his first day at the beach, but when you are a small dog in a big new place, sometimes it is an effort just keeping up. Winston?s World: The Beach is a children?s storybook with photographs by Debby Heard and words by Sue Allison. The story about the exploits of three dogs at a beach is simple and poignant. The book is beautifully presented with sepia photographs on dark brown paper. It is aimed at children aged 2 to 9 years, but has wider appeal among teenagers, adults and dog-lovers at large. Winston's World was filmed at Waikuku Beach and Greta Valley, North Canterbury. All photographs are as they happened. They are real dogs in real situations.
'Winston's World is a wet one. Welcome to the wet, wild, wicked, wonderful world of three dogs on a beach. I've known Maxes, Jacks and Winstons nearly all my life. They leap at you from these pages, smelling of sand, surf, seaweed and happy wet dog. This book is a delight.'
