Red Dog is a West Australian, a lovable friendly red kelpie who found widespread fame as a result of his habit of travelling all over Western Australia, hitching rides over thousands of miles, settling in places for months at a time and adopting new families before heading off again to the next destination and another family – sometimes returning to say hello years later. While visiting Australia, Louis de Bernières heard the legend of Red Dog and decided to do some research on this extraordinary story. After travelling to Western Australia and meeting countless people who'd known and loved Red Dog, Louis decided to spread Red Dog's fame a little further. The result is an utterly charming tale of an amazing dog with places to go and people to see.

Enjoyable, especially if you like dogs
OK for a freebie but glad I didn't buy it
Although it was well narrated I felt that it was missing a bit of substance. I had to check if it was a children's book early on as nothing much seemed to happen in it.
The fact that the author had pieced together stories of this dog's life from word of mouth stories.
I understand that it has been. Maybe it is better than the book.
A bit of a disappointment for a book by this excellent author. I think I'll dig out Captain Correlli's Mandolin again for something a bit more engaging.
