Mike&Scrabble

A guide to training your new human

Mike Dicks

 

A simple picture book for people who can't be bothered to read a proper book about dogs

Mike&Scrabble is an often funny, sometimes melancholy, and occasionally accurate guide to understanding the relationship between a dog and a human. A picture book for adults that grew out of one human trying to remember why he ended up with a dog, and sharing his thoughts as pictures on social media.

There are many wise, practical, and academic books that explore the relationship between pets and their owners; Mike&Scrabble is not one of them. Instead, this picture book for adults gives an insight into the mind of a dog who has acquired a slightly damaged human, and sets about trying to train him.

Mike&Scrabble's simple illustrations and one-line observations were originally designed by Mike, despite what Scrabble says, as posts for Twitter and Facebook, to joke about becoming a dog owner. The posts gathered a following of loyal fans, mainly dog owners (about 90%), mainly women (about 55%), and mostly English or American (70%). Except for one fan in Vietnam.

This is a book that dogs will buy, but as they have trouble using an iPad and don't keep money on them, it may well be attractive to their Human pets.

  • An often funny, and sometimes sad, look at the relationship between a dog and her human
  • Explains the quirky behaviour of humans and dogs through pictures
  • A smart dog and a dumb human learn to live together
  • Simple, pretty picture book for people who can't be bothered to read a proper book about dogs
  • Humans are a dog's best friend; this book is the guide to how to train them
Mike Dicks has had what is best described as a 'portfolio career,’ and a life of creating anecdotes about himself.
Mike accidentally got jobs selling technologies before anyone wanted them, then made bits of the world-wide-web before anyone knew they needed them.

Recently, Mike has been travelling the world teaching people how not to make the same mistakes that he did, and making pictures of Brighton and dead celebrities for people to buy.

Mike lives by the sea, in Hove, with a dog called Scrabble. He’s married to Debbie and has two sons, and a stepson and stepdaughter.
