A story demonstrating the loyalty of a blind and faithful old sheepdog named Buster, who is always diligent in his duty of guarding and protecting Tilly, the youngest and most vulnerable member of the family when she becomes lost in the Australian bush. By following his nose Buster can easily lead Tilly home, but he can’t make her understand what he wants. He stays with Tilly and looks after her all through the night, keeping her warm and warning wild dingoes to stay away until the search party of family and friends, alerted by Buster’s barking, eventually find them in the early morning mist.

Through the Gate tells the story of a child who has just moved house and is struggling to cope with all the changes in her life. She relates to the dilapidated house she has moved to, as she sits sad and forlorn upon its broken front step.
But, as the story unfolds, the house is gradually repaired paralleling how the child’s perception of her new situation improves. Each time the child passes ‘through the gate’, into the world beyond, she notices more of her surroundings and discovers that her new life has some wonderful things in it.
Within the illustrations is a ‘spot the difference’ game that encourages interaction with the story and develops observation skills. Younger children can be involved in spotting the more obvious changes and older children will be challenged with the more subtle transformations.
