Meet animals and experience adventure through the stories in ‘Ralphie And Friends’

Barbara Tufford shares life from a dog’s perspective in her new children’s book

CROSSVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Written as a dog thriller from a pooch’s perspective, “Ralphie And Friends” (published by AuthorHouse) by Barbara Tufford contains four short stories with “fun, adventure and laughter.” The book is the first in a planned multi-title series for children.


Ralphie and his friends are little thrill seekers. They travel not just all over the world, but out of it too, with the last story taking place partly on a planet called Rayon. In the tales, Ralphie learns lessons, plays with friends, investigates mysteries and gets help from his friends. To help children think about the deeper meaning of the adventures, Tufford offers an author’s note after some stories.


Knowing that many people deal with hustle and bustle and uncertainty, Tufford wants her book to offer some relaxation. She says, “I am hoping people will be able to forget everything and only want to wrap themselves around Ralphie’s Adventures, even just for a short time.”
