Pencil Dog is a brand new book from Leigh Hodgkinson that will stay with you for a long, long time.

This poignant story follows a little girl who has a pencil dog as a companion - an incredible creature full of imagination and creativity.

But as time goes on, Pencil Dog is getting smaller and his drawings are getting confused...

With themes of memory and remembrance and the message that those we love live on within us, Pencil Dog truly is a book to treasure.

And the illustrations are just as lovely as the story, too. We've got a sneak peek at some of the pictures in the book, so take a look through our gallery below to see them.
