Dr Jackrussell & Mr Hyena


Instant Digital Download

Dr. Jackrussell & Mr. Hyena is the retelling of The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde, liberally reworked and rewritten to appeal to today’s younger readers. At the same time, this book still preserves much of the text, tone, and character of the original publication’s narrative and in so doing introduces children to the language of great literature. • 85 pages • 9 full page illustrations

“A beautiful retelling of a classic story, beautifully illustrated. The text and the illustrations combine to preserve the mysterious and captivating tone of the original while rendering the story accessible to younger, modern readers. The book admirably avoids the common pitfalls of over-simplified modernisation, and captures the shadowy, style and spirit of Stevenson’s work. • Talking animals can be a hard act to manage (and I speak as one who has some experience in that regard), but this locates the greatest effect of the anthropomorphic tale: the characters, as dogs, heighten aspects of character and personality, and shine a revealing light on human nature. Entertaining and recommended.”

—Dan Abnett, writer of Marvel’s The Guardians of the Galaxy and X-Men; & DC’s The Legion of Super Heroes
