We are very grateful to publications that feature our book. In the past two weeks, both The Labradorian and Yorkton This Week have published articles about Lady MacBeth Afraid of the Stairs.

We’re also gratified by all the positive feedback from readers, including this from Patricia Forster on Amazon.ca.

“I bought this book for each of my four grandchildren for Christmas. (ages 6-11). They all loved it…in different ways. Two of them had just gotten a puppy, so were very interested in Lady MacBeth’s journey. The other two (grade three twins) wished they could trade in their bunny for a dog like Ms. MacBeth! The pictures are beautiful, and the story line so fitting and enjoyable for dog lovers old and young! We can’t wait to read more of Lady MacBeth’s adventures!”

Thank you.
