One Dog and His Boy
All Hal wants is a dog. All we want is a dog and a book like this. (OK: plus a choc chip cookie.) A tail-wagging grand adventure. All his life, Hal has dreamed of a dog. But it would damage the posh carpets in his parents’ glamorous home. There’s no way they’ll ever allow it. That is, until they discover Easy Pets: a local dog-rental agency. Fleck the terrier arrives on Hal’s birthday. He’s tail-thumpingly perfect. Woof. But Hal’s joy turns to horror when he learns his dog has to be returned. So he runs away. Not just with Fleck – but with all the pedigree hounds from Easy Pets. It’s the funniest, most marvellous dog walk in history. Eva Ibbotson, we miss you so.
