Tails You Win is an engaging collection of poems written from the dogs’ perspective. It is the seventh book of original metric rhyming verse by Gill Rowe and contains beautiful hand-drawn illustrations.
Starting with the Afghan Hound and Airedale Terrier, Tails You Win charmingly encapsulates the traits and personalities of fifty different dogs. Whether you’re dotty about Dalmatians, mad about Miniature Dachshunds or crazy for Cavaliers, there’s truly something for everyone in this cheery homage to dogs.
Gill Rowe is the author of Pirouetting Hippos, How Do I Look?, You’re Telling Me!, Widening Horizons, A Whiff of Rosemary and Stalking the Crilbit. A few of the dogs in Tails You Win have made an appearance in an earlier volume.
Gill has worked as a freelance journalist and teacher. She also paints and has exhibited in London and elsewhere. Married, with children and grandchildren, she lives in London. Over the years canine family members have included Cairn Terriers, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Dachshunds and Labradors.
