Blinky Bill and the Lost Puppy

Blinky Bill and the Lost Puppy  (1999) Post 402

 Blinky Bill and the Lost Puppy  has Blinky and the gang hearing a lost puppy crying in the bush. The gang would take the puppy home, but Puppy doesn't know the way. As they search, Puppy comes up with snippets of information, and a guessing game ensues.
Naturally, there is a happy ending. This little set of books is for very young listeners/readers and has Blinky being genuinely helpful rather than playing tricks.


Sally is Sally Odgers; author, manuscript assessor, editor, anthologist and reader. She runs http://www.affordablemanuscriptassessments.com and Prints Charming Books. (Sally is me, by the way, and I am lots of other things too, but these are the relevant ones for now.)

The goal for 2017 was to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. 2017 is now behind us, but I ran out of year before running out of books, so the blog will continue for at least the next month or so.


  1. It is a bit different from the "older" ones.

    1. Yeah, Shifty's not in the book like he was in the TV episode. The gang was still finding their way home back to Greenpatch. I love the Blinky Bill Gang, but I feel it just doesn't feel complete without Shifty.


Thanks for reading
