The Incredible Billy Wild

If you could ask God for one thing, what would it be? For Billy, there’s no contest: it’s got to be a dog. So when his teacher asks his class to write a letter to God, that’s what he requests. Skeptical? Don’t laugh – start writing your letter to heaven! Because when Billy gets home, he finds a greyhound hiding in the shed. Yep – for real! It turns out that God was listening. But though Billy’s prayer has been answered, he still has a teensy problem. How will he hide the dog from Dad and his Other Nan? The answer could save hundreds of doggy lives. Woof! And help Billy Weird to find the brave, wild kid hidden inside him…
