ABOUT THE ART
All proceeds go towards Roddy Dolye's "Fighting Words" project
A short story taken from the Fighting Words charity collection, BEYOND THE STARS, written and illustrated by two of the most outstanding talents in children's fiction today Told from the perspective of the Russian dog Tsygan, this is the story of the first living creatures to be sent into space - the 'star dogs' of the title. Roddy Doyle's typically accessible voice is complemented by the illuminating illustrations of Steve Simpson, together immersing a new generation of young readers in the incredible true story of the Soviet space dogs, one of the twentieth century's true feats of science.
