About The Book:
Butterball Gets Lost (Butterball the Poodle Book 2)
By Julia Seaborn
This is the marvelous second installment of the Butterball the Poodle series and it is quite enjoyable. Butterball is left on her own as her Mummy runs some errands. She digs under the fence in her yard and starts an adventure that leads her far from home. Much like her day at the beach in the first book, along the way she makes new friends and learns fun facts about the other animals in her world.
The art is colorfully engaging and it complements the story format well. This is a great story to read to little ones as it also offers new knowledge about animals, some color and counting practice along with a subtle moral about making good choices. At the end of the story, again like “Butterball Goes to the Beach”, children are encouraged to participate through a series of questions and fun activities. This is the perfect story for a group read or classroom circle time.

About The Author:
Julia was born in Austria of Ukrainian background. She had a post-war education in semi-rural south-east England where she had a happy childhood. She’s been a bit of a wanderer traveling to many countries but now lives in Adelaide, Australia. Julia seems to thrive on change. The number of jobs she’s had is much like the number of countries she’s visited – 35 in all. Those jobs have ranged from teacher’s aide, hand pollinating corn in fields, TV ads, working in a funeral parlour, plus an assortment of secretarial and administrative positions. Julia adores her miniature poodle, Pippin who competes in dog sports and walks him every day. She loves her garden, enjoys reading and writing children’s stories. Julia is happily married with one son, two stepsons, one stepdaughter, and four grandchildren. Her aspiration is to write a series of children’s books and on that note, she agrees with the optimistic view on life that “the glass is half full, not half empty”.
