My Secret Dog

by Tom Alexander

My Secret Dog is my first published book for children aged 5-10. It's published in the UK and US by Jessica Kingsley Publishers.

Publisher's blurb

The delightful story of a young girl inviting a dog into her home to stay as her secret houseguest. Although her mother has said they don't have room to keep a dog, the girl hatches a daring plan to make sure that nobody finds out... only to discover that dogs, like secrets, are much harder to keep under wraps than she suspected!

My Secret Dog was inspired by - and is dedicated to - my sister Lois, who wants a dog even more than the little girl in the story.

I created animations for the book's marketing campaign, using Tumult Hype.
