Red Dog, the Movie

Red Dog the movie is out today in Australia. 
It's a film about the very same Red Dog our book is based on.

I can't wait to see it.
It's not exactly the same as our book, of course. But it's about the same dog.
The dog who plays the part of Red Dog is called Koko. 

He's a really clever dog.
Here is a short clip of his screen test.
The director of the movie is talking to him.

Isn't he a cute dog?
They dyed his fur red for the movie.

 I love this poster, too.

I'm really looking forward to seeing this movie.
You can read more about it here.
You can buy our book about Red Dog here.
I wrote about Red Dog earlier on this blog. It contains a story from my friend Janet, who actually met the real Red Dog. You can read it here.


  1. That's a gorgeous 'screen test'. Koko is so expressive - I've just got to see the movie.
    I loved the book - can I put a link to this site on our students' wiki?
