Big MacExcerpt: One day Mac was outside playing in the garden of the house where he lived with Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Tyron, baby Katia,
Dipper, and The Cat. He was pursuing one of his favourite pastimes, chasing The Cat, when suddenly, something caught his attention. <End of Second Paragraph, Page 1>

About the Author: This is the second book Danielle wrote and illustrated for children (after her non-fiction success), inspired by her German Shepherds, and their continuous epic adventures. She sort of imagined they were just like in this book – lots of excitement, lots of worry, and some very scared dogs when they can’t find home at nightfall. Some subtle lessons are provided about choices and ways to explore them. It would help if she was home from work more for walks!
