Miss Moon - Wise Words from a Dog Governess


All books are signed by the author.

Miss Wilhelmina Moon is a dog governess. At her first placement, on a small island off the coast of France, her new charges - sixty-seven dogs of all shapes, sizes and colors - run wild. But armed with patience and a passion for teaching, as well as her companions, Mitford the monkey and Petunia the French bulldog, Miss Moon soon imparts twenty important lessons to her furry brood. Some are practical, some are playful, one or two are a little unusual, but all are necessary for the raising of happy, healthy and well-mannered dogs (and humans).


“The prim and proper Miss Moon has learned valuable lessons over the course of her employment, which are here shared alongside ornate oil paintings with a luxuriousness usually reserved for, well, cat people.” — National Post

“A wide variety of dog breeds are accurately portrayed in a post-impressionist style—except for the anthropomorphic details that cannot help but charm viewers. (All the dogs in “Never stop learning” wear glasses, and two carry pens in their mouths.) And what a talent Hill has for that mea culpa doggy look!” — Kirkus Review

“This is Mary Poppins (or Mary Poochins) meets Renoir: the paintings are lush but restrained and the style balances the delightful absurdity of images like a golden retriever picnicking in full Napoleon regalia.” — Quill & Quire
