KATHRYN RECOURT and her husband, Don, live with their large, drooly dog, Archie in Niagara-on-the-Lake in Canada.
Part English Mastiff and part St. Bernard, this beloved rescue dog is the inspiration for the Sir Archibald Stories. Kathryn first thought about the stories when her grandchildren, Grayson and Rachel, asked why Archi drooled so much. Kathryn really wanted to put all that drool to literary use!
Archie’s drool was used in the first story in this series, Sir Archibald Droolsalot: Big Dog Blues to help his friend, Bricky the English Bulldog, who was being bullied by the Doberman brothers.
Kathryn found a very different use for the drool in the second book! Using his drool, Archie and his friends help Muffin and her kittens get home.
In the third book of this series, Archie helps Bricky to understand that having another dog in the home can be a very good thing, and teaches a puppy that drool can be very useful!
Kathryn has always read to her children and grandchildren and made up stories for them all. She enjoys bringing Archie and his drool to so many children around the world in these stories of problem-solving, friendship and inclusion.
