Eunice Ogden from Windermere is hoping her little dog Henry will encourage Cumbrian children to read and teach them how to look after a dog.
When Mrs Ogden adopted Henry 8 years ago, her grandchildren wanted to meet him. But they live in Canada, so she sent stories about their walks.
It's helped her French-speaking family learn English. But they have a message for Henry too.
Mrs Ogden, who goes under the pen-name of Victoria Howarth, has published 5 stories.
As well as getting to grips with online sales, she has asked local shops to sell them, from her local vets to post offices, book shops and village stores.
But she doesn't think she'll make any money from them. She's paid for them to be published herself.
