A charming new picture book, full of barks and plenty of heart.

Dog bark.

Tree bark.

Let's go see bark.

The perfect picture book for animal-lovers and nature-lovers everywhere, from rising stars Victoria Mackinlay and Beth Harvey.


This picture book is quite perfect for independent reading by beginner readers or for pre-readers to join in a shared reading. I recommend it highly for any kids aged 2 to 6 years ...'

- CBCA Reading Time

'I'm amazed at how a picture book with so few words can tell a story with so much action, emotion and adventure. How it can tell us so much about its characters and subject with such rhythm and ease, and then hit us with an ending that wows us. I find it pure joy.'

- Reading with a Chance of Tacos

'This is one of those beautiful books that has something for everyone who engages with it ... We all have small worlds that we live in, like the dog in this story. It captures so much joy through the dog and its excitement throughout the day that it will just bring a smile to the reader's face.'

- The Book Muse

'Victoria Mackinlay has made clever and sparse use of language to share a dog's eye experience of the world. Repetition, adjectives, opposites and other concepts are all part of The Bark Book.

Beth Harvey, an artist and animator (including on Bluey), has brought the dog's experiences to life with a playful and appealing canine friend.'
