About the Story

Meet my dog Bigsy. He's only small, but everyone knows he's the boss.

Each morning he visits the animals on the farm.

Squawk, neigh, quack, moo, baa, oink, cluck, purr, ruff ruff ruff!

What a lot of noise! And all because of Bigsy!


Join author, illustrator and storyteller Alison Lester and her special companion Bigsy, as they read a very special story, My Dog Bigsy!

Watch as Bigsy playfully bounds around his farmyard home, meeting and greeting a wonderful host of animals, including cockatoos, ducks, piglets, chickens, sheep and kangaroos. 

This story is a celebration of the simple, joyful energy of dogs, and children (and adults!) will love joining in making animal sounds as Bigsy noisily romps around the farm. 

Alison Lester's gorgeous, richly textured and bold illustrations are utterly charming, and perfectly complement this fabulous read-aloud story.
