Meet Basil and Prune the Pug! These adorable characters are based on the real-life family of author Kim Wassick. Kim’s granddaughter Basil was the 2nd baby of the family, the first was Prune who ruled as King of the House before baby arrived!
Kim tells us more: “Prune is a very spoiled and loved black, chubby pug. Nobody was sure how Prune was going to receive a new baby in the house but he was so cute with Basil. They quickly became best friends. He sleeps with her, eats her food and plays with her. They are just too cute together. “
Kim, a graphic designer, was inspired to create these characters just as they are. Their stories are based on their real life and the fun things Basil and Prune do together.
Basil and Prune visit the Farmer’s Market, do yoga together, and go through the daily grind of baby/doggie life.
My family adores these books. They are very well written – engaging young readers, older readers, and parent readers. The illustrations are playful and eye catching.
Purchase these books online or locally at The Bennington Bookstore or Northshire Bookstore (Manchester). Be sure to LIKE and follow Basil and Prune on facebook; there you will learn the latest adventure news and/or where to find Kim at upcoming events.
