These timeless books for children and dog-lovers have been specially re-released to celebrate Winston’s 15th birthday. Winston’s World: The Beach and its sequel, Winston’s World: The Snow, are photographic storybooks by Debby Heard and writer Sue Allison. The photographs, shot on 35mm film, were taken in pristine New Zealand locations – the beaches and forests of Canterbury and foothills of the Southern Alps. The text is simple and poignant, designed for early readers without being childish.
Debby Heard’s three dogs provided the inspiration for this tale – a picture book of beautiful sepia shots, taken candidly and framed on brown paper. Sue Allison’s words are understated, making this book, ostensibly for children, a tale that can be told across generations.
– Simon Sweetman, Dominion Post
What a beautifully produced book this is, transcending any age or cultural barriers. A simple story, conveyed through minimal text and stunning photographs; the simplicity bringing both elegance and scope. The dogcentric text has an unobtrusive haiku spareness.
-Lynndy Bennett, manager of children’s bookshop, Gleebooks, Sydney
I stumbled upon a copy of ‘Winston’s World’ and I absolutely love it. It is so beautifully written and beautifully photographed that it just about brings a tear to my eye every time I read it! I want to send the book to just about everyone I know!

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.
– Jon Gadsby
Winston’s World: The Beach is my 13-month-old daughter’s favourite book and I have to read it about 20 times a day!
I have two children, 7 years and 9 years, who adore Winston’s World. My son has nearly memorized it word for word.
This book touched my heart; I actually stood crying in the shop. This book is an absolute credit to all involved.
My class simply adored these wonderful books! I introduced them at our staff meeting and lots of people want to get copies.

Winston is my new entrant class’s favourite book.
