'A wonderful tale, told with heart, hope and a shiny wet nose.'
Gill Lewis, author of Sky Hawk

Digger and Me is a touching story about family, friendship and finding your voice.

Whatever you've done, if you whinge or you whine, Digger is there, the same every time. He's the heart of the home, my best hairy friend, I'll love him forever, to the very last end. James splits his life between his mum’s and his dad’s houses. It’s far from perfect. Especially now Dad doesn’t have time for bike rides with him any more and Mum’s always with her new boyfriend. The constant is Digger, his dog and best friend. He’s the glue that holds the two halves of James’s life together. So when James finds a lump on Digger’s leg, everything changes. Digger is the one he can talk to about anything. But when it’s Digger he needs to talk about, where can he turn?

'Warm, funny, kind, heartbreaking in places, but most of all just so vivid. It'll stay with me for ages!'
Nicola Penfold, author of Where the World Turns Wild

'A story full of humanity.'
Cath Howe, author of Ella on the Outside

'A really special book.'
Hilary McKay, author of The Skylarks' War

'Narrator Laurence Boxhall flawlessly presents endearing James as he faces his parents' divorce in this coming-of-age story. Listeners observe the close bond James has with his dog, Digger, and are saddened when James discovers a lump on Digger's leg. Boxhall skillfully introduces outstanding teacher Mr. Froggett, who warmly encourages his sixth graders to write poetry. Other important characters are James's Polish best friend, Tomaz, and his mother, who has a cheerful tone. The story takes a turn when Digger's medical bills mount, and James's mother tries to hide her worries. The heartbreaking reality of this story is painful yet comforting, and James's changing feelings about the new adults in his life are well rendered. Further, Boxhall's spirited recitations of the students' poetry are a delight.'
