Title: The Kero’s World series
Author: Victoria Zigler
Narrator of audio editions: Giles Miller
Genre: Children’s stories – animals/pets
Main character description (short). Kero is a West Highland White Terrier, which is a little white dog with pointed ears.
Synopsis: This is a seven book series that provides a semi-fictionalized view of the life of the author’s own dog, with events described as they might appear through the dog’s eyes.
Brief Excerpt 250 words:
“Are we going walkies?” Kero asked in his most excited sounding bark. But, of course, the human didn’t understand him and only heard “bark, bark, bark.”
“Hush Kero,” the human said. “You’re coming, but please stop barking.”
“I’m coming? Horray!” Kero barked, jumping up and down excitedly, his tail wagging as fast as it possibly could.
“You have to wear your coat,” his human told him. “It’s cold out.”
That was fine with Kero, just as long as he got to go. Besides, he liked his coat. It was blue and green and made of a soft material that felt good against his fur.
Kero tried very hard to stay still while his human put his coat on him, but he was so excited he just couldn’t stay still for a moment. This meant it took ages to get his coat on him, but they got there in the end.
“You have to calm down so I can put this on you,” the human said, holding Kero’s harness and lead out to him.
Kero tried to calm down. He really did. But he was so excited about going for walkies that he couldn’t stay still. But his human was used to this, and eventually she managed to get his harness on him. Once that was done it took only a few seconds for his lead to be clipped to the metal loops on the harness.
At last, they were ready to go.

Thanks for posting this, Alex!
Second post on this blog I’ve read with a Welsh connection. Perhaps that’s not odd, but since one of my YA fantasy series uses Welsh myth it struck me. FWIW, I’ve been to England, Ireland, and Scotland, but never Wales. Obviously, I need to correct that.

Wales is a very beautiful part of the world. I love myth – especially British myths (and Graeco-Roman) so all for promoting the culture and fantasy of Britain and it’s composite countries.

Yes, you should visit Wales. If nothing else then to say you’ve done so.
