At Chatterbooks we love inspiring children to engage with books and reading and to help teachers, librarians and parents do this, we produce Chatterpacks - special themed or book title focused packs full of quizzes and wordsearches and lots of fun reading, writing and drawing ideas that you can use with your Chatterbooks groups.
We've just created with HarperCollins a Chatterpack for A Dog called Homeless by Sarah Lean - a story about love, loss, friendship, and the extraordinary connection between a girl and a special dog.

Cally Fisher saw her mum bright and real and alive. But no one believes her, so Cally's
stopped talking. Only the mysterious wolfhound that has been following her ever since
seems to know that Cally was telling the truth....
