Like so many children, Lucy wants a dog. But, unlike other children, Lucy interviews animals to fill the pet vacancy. And she gets a little more than she expected. Endearing and heart-warming, this story shows (with a humour that never overshadows the message) that being different is good.

Another classic from this husband-and-wife team, told with simplicity and portrayed through appealing characters, illustrated with style and confidence.

Critic Reviews

It's a lovely story with a gentle understated theme about friendship, compromise and taking people for what they are, rather than what you want them to be. It's a delight.
