Permanent Barker is the thrilling picture book debut from Essex-based artist and illustrator, Oliver Dean.
Originally financed through crowd-funding website; Kickstarter, the book has since been distributed worldwide to a growing fan base of children and parents.
Permanent Barker aims to challenge the picture book market through an exciting and engaging story combined with bold, original imagery, all developed with the help of schools based in Essex and London.
Arthur is a persistent and (sometimes!) loveable dog who notices something strange about the moon; it’s getting closer! In an effort to communicate what he sees Arthur finds himself left at the bottom of the garden for being too loud and barking too much.
Eventually the world notices how dangerously close the moon has become, but is it too late?!
True to his character, Arthur never gave up barking and decides to act like a dog and bark at the moon. All that barking practise comes with a surprise that not even Arthur knew would be possible. He might just save the world!
