KPE Episode 91 -"Barry and Bitsa" by Sandy McKay.
"Barry and Bitsa" by Sandy McKay.
Crystal has been reading this book and Kayla is her DJ. Both girls are Year 6 students from Room 17. "Barry and Bitsa" was published as part of the Kiwi Bites series in 2005. Sandy tells stories that children enjoy reading and this book is no exception. Barry brings home a dog from the pet shop, and as the name suggests, he is a 'bitsa'.
In this story both the boy and the dog need to gain acceptance, and by the end they both do. Barry is accepted by the local boys and Bitsa overcomes Mum's reluctance to become part of the family.
