This is an imaginary tale of my dog, Ah Bee and his two friends JojoB and Momo who met each other on the internet. The idea of writing a book came in 2012 when I started doing photoshop collages of these dogs onto graphical backgrounds to tell a story. I wanted to depict Ah Bee as a hero and having a good time with his two friends. After I have completed the collages, I began to string them into a story and added in the text.
Ah Bee has worn several fanciful outfits for his photoshoot and participated in dog fashion contests in his younger days. The outfits were specially designed and tailored made by me. And these outfits serve as an inspiration to many of the collages I have created.
The photo collages were subsequently posted on Ah Bee’s facebook fan page and they garnered a fair amount of enthusiasm and “likes”. I would like to think of them as humans – with equal entitlement to dreams, friendship and even love. I thought it would be nice to publish this book to share it with children and people who loves dogs as much as I do.
4 years later, I finally realised my dream of publishing my first children’s book – with kind sponsorship from my dear husband.
It is a soft cover book with a total of 41 pages. The story spans 19 pages of fully illustrated pictures and 19 pages of accompanied text. There is one page for foreword, 1 page on the author and 1 page of photo credits. The story is suitable for ages 3 to 12, though parental guidance is advised.
