Big Dog Stories 


Founded by: Colin Fraser

Meet Colin, the doodler and storyteller behind Big Dog Stories - a a series of children's picture books centred around a leggy rescue lurcher and his adventures. But this isn’t just a series of story books, it’s a creative escape. Writing a children’s book had been a tick box on Colin’s bucket list for many years but being an illustrator was something that was left far back in his childhood. When illustrating his first story - ‘Big Dog and the Home for Lost Hounds’ - he found as an adult, his favoured past time brought him a space to switch-off from the ‘real world’ and destress. Seeing the value drawing brought, he decided to use his stories as the vehicle to encourage others to pick up the pencil and switch-off through sketch. Each book instalment comes with a downloadable activity pack with colouring-in pages, drawing tasks and doodling prompts to get children, their parents and relatives to connect with their creativity. With the first book edging towards print, this is just one of a very long tail of tales.
