Spike the Dhog
A childrens' book
“For ages 1 – 8 years”
Meet Spike the Dhog, an endearing creature who seems to be part pig, a little bit of hedgehog, and a whole lot
of dog. Spike arrives on earth from points unknown. Follow Spike as he searches among birds, fish, turtles,
prairie dogs, barn cats and pigs on his
quest to find a home where he will be accepted for who he is.
Co-authored with my mother, Priscilla Gifford, this light-hearted story will carry readers on a journey that is both adventurous
and difficult. With his expressive, pink eyes and spiky hedgehog hair, Spike is such an endearing character we can't help
cheering when he finally finds a loving home. The story is filled with pictures that children will pore over again and again.
It celebrates diversity and acceptance
while never losing a sense of sheer joy and fun.
