Ellie the Wiener Dog: It's Hard To Swim

I got my advanced reader copy of the most adorable book ever recently. Ellie The Wiener Dog is a cute little pup that teaches children life lessons, in her fun, fully illustrated books written by K.J Hales with vibrant illustrations by Serene Wyatt. 

In her second book, It's Hard To Swim, Ellie is faced with a new environment when she chases her ball onto a dock and her humans urge her to jump in and splash around. 





Ellie, naturally, is scared of this new experience. She's only ever known dry land, after all. Her mind races with all the things that could go wrong and all the creatures she may run into . 


Will Ellie get over her fears and try something new? Will she enjoy her new experience and end up having fun? 

My children and I absolutely loved this book. Both of my children laughed out loud a few times and I'm a sucker for the combination of great, imaginative story telling and beautiful, vibrant illustrations. Ellie is absolutely adorable and will certainly become a family favorite. Not only is she teaching your children life lessons, but the stories will become family favorites that your children can enjoy for years to come. 

It's Hard to Swim will be available June 6, 2017.

About the author:

K.J. is an award winning photographer, artist and writer who found inspiration in her wienerdog, Ellie. She never dreamed of becoming an author. Then one day, a sassy wienerdog named Ellie came into her life and nothing was ever the same again. 

Hales shares, "I started doodling wienerdog's everywhere and I couldn't stop. Next thing you know, I was writing quirky little stories about Ellie's everyday struggles and thought how much they mirrored those of children." That was when the idea of a children's book series was born.

IT'S HARD TO BE GOOD is the first book in the series "Life's Little Lessons by Ellie the Wienerdog."

Because she has always believed in the power and magic of a good book, K.J. has dedicated herself to writing stories for children and building a publishing company that celebrates books for the young and the young at heart.

K.J. lives in Southern California with her husband, her muse, Ellie the Wienerdog and Ellie’s little sisters, Ruby and Pepper.
