Jan Britland is an artist and children’s book author living inPunta Gorda,Florida. Jan and her husband Bill, live with two bulldogs Duncan and Madison, a parrot Lola and two red-eared turtles Sparky and Chip, all of whom are portrayed in her stories. 

The Adventures of Rodger Dodger Dog started with a dog that was tied to a tree in Jan’sNew Jersey neighborhood.  The dog would climb up into the tree if it was raining or if it was hot to keep cool.  As she would drive her children to school, Jan would make up stories about “Rodger Dodger” and the adventures he would have up in the tree.

Jan’s children, who now have children of their own, wanted to have the stories written down to read to their children.  Jan agreed to write the stories after reading a book to her grandson Daltonwho upon completion of the book asked “Gammy, what does it mean??” The book had no beginning, middle or end. The book essentially was disjointed words with no story or rhyme.  Author Website:

  5. My four year old loves rhyming books! They are helping him learn to sound out words as he’s learning to read. I also really like that the author used stories she used to tell her children in the car – that’s inspirational.

  7. In a world where Christmas commercials and hype start before Halloween, it’s important to remind our kids that Christmas isn’t about the latest Elmo toy or getting lots of pretty wrapped gifts under the tree. It’s sounds like Rodger Dodger Dog: A Christmas Story is a book that will help us with that job. And I really like the fact that the story was based on a real tree climbing dog! 🙂 I’ve no doubt that my son would enjoy this book. The other three Rodger Dodger books look like they also share important messages as well.

  12. I would love to have this book for my grandkids, their grandpa’s name (my husband, lol) is Roger and when he was little they did call him “Roger Dodger”. Those same relatives even call him that today sometimes. Thank you for writing this book.
