The new children’s book Bagels Come Home!, about a lovable dog named Bagels, is the latest title from the pen of children’s book author Joan Betty Stuchner.

The award-winning Canadian writer – a native of Leeds, England, who in the mid-’60s immigrated at age 18 to Vancouver, Canada – traces her writing interests to an inner desire to tell stories. Stuchner relates, “I always told myself stories; there’s a story in everything. Stories pop into my head seemingly out of nowhere, or because of a word, or a person, or perhaps an article or headline.”
