Take Off! (Evie and Pog, Book 1)

Tania McCartney, Cecelia Ramsdale

In the bestselling tradition of Ella and Olivia, comes the first book in a new series for early readers about best friends, Evie and Pog.

High in a tree house live two very best friends. One is a girl and one is a dog. And everyone knows them as Evie and Pog. Evie is six years old. She likes knitting and jumping and books and cake. Pog is a pug. He is two and likes to drink tea and read the newspaper. Evie and Pog also love to have fun!

Join them as they take off on three happy adventures - Puppy School Mess, School Play Drama and Cake Stall Chaos.


Best friends Evie (a girl) and Pog (a dog) live in an expansive treehouse in Granny’s big backyard. They’re a lovable duo with unusual quirks: accident-prone Evie loves rolling on grass and drinking from dog bowls; sedate Pog enjoys drinking tea and reading newspapers!

But whether they’re at puppy school or performing in the school play, their zany mishaps start with Evie’s propensity for calamity and end with Pog saving the day (and Evie). An abundance of slapstick humour is sure to engage children and keep them reading while laughing out loud.

Delightful illustrations, well-spaced text with individual word highlights and short, humorous chapters make this book an ideal transition from picture books to junior fiction. Take Off! and Playtime are the first two books in the fun new Evie and Pog adventure series and are recommended for readers aged 7+.
