More about the authors:

"“Bracingly honest, funny and rewarding, this is a book you can’t put down.” The Sydney Morning Herald.

S. Sëan Tretheway
Born in California, Sean sailed from Los Angeles to Tahiti in his early twenties in a boat he built with his sister and brother-in-law. In 1983, he found Noosa and realized that his childhood hobby as magician could earn him a fulltime living.  He has produced and presented on Noosa Community Radio and written two books.  Sean currently presents a weekly Podcast (The Ben and Sean Show) and is working on two more books.

Suzanne Wright
"Especially designed to help you cope through those first weeks of puppy mayhem. You will need help and help is at hand with this book!"
