BARRY'S ADVENTURE, a favourite family reading by award-winning author Dulce Rodrigues, received "Honourable Mention" at the 2013 London Book Festival.
This award-winning children's book tells the true adventure of the very special pet dog Barry. So special indeed that he even runs his own website - barry4kids.net!
Born and raised in Portugal, Barry lives happily in his nice house surrounded by a garden until the day his human family moves to Belgium and makes up their mind to take him with them. Barry does not like the idea of making such a long car trip; he had never been inside a car in his life! He tries to escape but gets caught, and has to be resigned to his family's wishes. How can his family play such a bad trick on him! He really does not deserve it! He has always been a faithful friend to them. Of course, humans are very ungrateful and egotistic beings, but... he had a different opinion about his family. Well, until a few moments ago! If at least he knew where they were taking him to... But nobody had even bothered telling him anything! And now there he is, sitting at the back of the car, the road before him, nothing else but always the road!
Barry is sad and angry, and when the car stops in Spain and he is put on a leash, he thinks he has had enough and decides to punish his family for what they are doing to him. He manages to get loose, and runs away... and loses track of his family... But all is all that ends well.
