A breathtaking historical adventure, drawing on the legend of the Hero dog of Pompeii, perfect for 8+

Follow Delta the wolfdog around Pompeii in 79 AD while the shadow of the great volcano Mount Vesuvius looms...

Anna Fargher is the bestselling author of The Umbrella Mouse, a perennial favourite with the Parrot Street crew. Here she turns her beautiful storytelling to ancient Pompeii, bringing to life young wolfdog Delta in a thrilling adventure packed with empathy. Highly recommended.


It’s the year 79 AD, and the earth around Pompeii is quaking . . .

Young wolfdog Delta finds herself on the run and escaping her family’s villa after bearing witness to a horrible crime. With the help of her eagle friend, Bellona, Delta navigates the tricky terrain full of threatening creatures and thieves outside the ancient city's walls.

But the earth is warning of a much larger threat, and determined to warn her family, Delta must race against time and find them before it’s too late . . .

Anna Fargher was raised in a creative hub on the Suffolk coast by an artist and a ballet teacher. She read English Literature at Goldsmiths before working in the British art world and opening her own gallery. She wrote her first book, The Umbrella Mouse, on her iPhone notepad during her daily commute on the London Underground, and it was selected as Waterstones Book of the Month.
