Set in a dogs' home, GOING HOME is a beautiful and heartwarming story for younger fans of THE INCREDIBLE JOURNEY.
At the Happy Paws Rescue Centre, every pet dreams of one thing: going home. But Ralph, Mitch, Bessie and Fred are the no-hopers: dogs so difficult or troublesome they aren't expected to ever go home. Ralph's face is scarred. Bessie can't stand to be touched. Mitch can't stop chasing cats and Fred . . . has just given up. Who'd want to adopt any of them instead of a cute little puppy?
But when Happy Paws reviews its policy of never putting an unwanted pet down, time starts running out for the dogs. Can they prove that they're worth a second chance? Will there be hope for the no-hopers after all?
Geoff Taylor was born in Lancaster, England in 1946. He studied Graphic Design at Chesterfield College of Art. After five years or so of working in advertising agencies in Nottingham, Geoff turned to illustrating book covers for most of the top fantasy writers of our time, both adult and children's fiction. Geoff was one of the illustrators for the legendary Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of ''The War of the Worlds'' album. Since 1994 he has added to some of the rich imagery of ''Games Workshop'' and the Black Library. Perhaps his true passions are best reflected in his wildlife paintings, especially wolves. He now lives in Cumbria with his wife. Find out more from his website www.geofftaylor.btinternet.co.uk.
