About the book:

‘Quanny and Danny’ is a charming children’s story by Barboria Bjarne about a cute little puppy, raised by a goose, and how he inadvertently finds his true voice.

Quanny is a goose who struts around the property as if she were a guard dog. She is looking after Danny, a little grey puppy, who follows Quanny everywhere. He has never heard another dog’s sound, and as a result, Danny has not learned how to bark like a dog; instead, he makes strange “goosey” sounds.

One day Quanny hears Danny making strange excited noises and goes to investigate. She sees that he has found a caterpillar. When Quanny gobbles it up, Danny’s expression of surprise is so funny that Quanny laughs out loud. That goosey laugh sounds close enough to a woof that, when Danny hears it, he stumbles upon his true voice. From then on, he can bark and woof as though he were raised by a dog.

Young children and their parents will enjoy reading this rhyming, light-hearted story about the unlikely pair of Quanny and Danny. It is filled with joy and accompanied by colourful and expressive illustrations.
