Flapjack Reed gets his first book!

Flapjack had no idea there was a little puppy in Arkansas also named Flapjack.  He was so thrilled to hear from the puppy’s mom and dad, Beth and Collin, about how they selected his first book.  Yes….Australian Shepherds have been known to learn to read.  Check it out here.  


This is what Beth shared about The Adventures of Flapjack – Finding Where I Belong


“I just wanted to reach out and tell you how much I loved your book, “The Adventures of Flapjack!” Not knowing about your book, we stumbled upon it two weeks after bringing home our Australian Shepherd puppy, named Flapjack. We bought copies for all our nieces and nephews for Christmas and the story is so perfect.

Thanks again!”





Flap was so happy that Flapjack’s (aka Jack’s) mom and dad picked his book that he promised to send a copy of The Collar of Courage and Saying Goodbye to him and his kitty sibling, Waffle, as soon as both were available.  Flapjack kept his promise and here’s a picture of Flap’s paw pal receiving them! You can also see more of Waffle and Flapjack on Instagram at @waffleandflapjack.

Looks like Jack just got surprised by Waffle.

Paws down….I think Jack is letting Waffle know he gets to read his new books first. What do you think? Will Jack share his books with his sister?

Wow! Presents from my paw pal Flapjack! 

 And a note too!!!!


You can only imagine Flap’s surprise when he opened a bulging package delivered by the Post Office to find letters and drawings from his “Flap Fans” sent to him from Mrs. Olesen’s 2nd and 3rd grade classes in Maine.

Mrs. Olesen read Flap’s books to the children and they immediately formed a bond with our intrepid Aussie.  He’s so thrilled!  He wishes he could visit them in person.

Here are the drawings along with Flap’s Fans’ letters just as they wrote them.  He hopes you enjoy reading them as much as he does!
