A lonely dachshund dreams of having a friend, but every time the little sausage dog goes to the park they find it hard to fit in. They can only watch the other dogs playing and having fun. Until one day, a friend comes along...

A Pack of Your Own is a warm and funny story about friendship in a dog's world. With exquisitely sweet illustrations, readers are invited  to ask themselves questions about friendship. How much should one adapt in order to be accepted and valued by others? Do we really need to be similar in order to be friends? And can a dachshund and a poodle be friends despite their differences?
Maria Nilsson Thore is an award-winning Swedish children's author and illustrator who lives in Stockholm with her dachsund Tics. A Pack of Your Own is the first of her books to be translated into English.
