Dog's tale offers hope to Christchurch kids

Four women from opposite ends of the country were determined to illustrate, design, publish and distribute a book in one month – a feat that usually takes up to two years.

The women were driven to succeed because of the one thing they all couldn't stop thinking about – the Christchurch earthquake.

Remuera resident Victoria Azaro received a phone call from manuscript assessor and publisher Jill Marshall two days after the quake shook Canterbury on February 22.

She illustrated the entire book in eight days – corresponding with Ms Marshall and designer Cheryl Rowe in Auckland and Christchurch resident and author Emma Pullar.

"We all wanted to push the little dog out into the world and get money for Christchurch," Ms Azaro says.
Curly from Shirley was on the shelves within three weeks and the proceeds are going to the Red Cross to help with relief efforts. MORE>>
