Z-DOG

Mein illustriertes Kinderbuch wird dieses Jahr auf AMAZON verkauft. Z-DOG ist zweisprachig Englisch/Deutsch, perfekt für Kinder – von 3 bis 6 Jahre alt – um spielerisch Englisch zu lernen und zugleich zu zeigen, dass auch Tiere Lebewesen sind.

Die Geschichte: Z-DOG lebt traurig und alleine in einem Tierheim. In seinen Träumen liebt er es zu rennen und zu fliegen; er geht roller-skaten, fährt sogar Autorennen bis eines Tages… boooom… Z-Dog’s reales Leben ändert sich mit einer riesigen Überraschung!

Storyline: Z-Dog is an unwanted dog living in an animal shelter like so many. In his dreams he loves to run and fly with his bird friend Coco; he goes roller skating, car riding with his imaginary friends until one day… boooom… his life changes with a big surprise ending!
