Roby and Judd are friends. One day, they secretly borrow a young puppy from the Tyler family pet shop and the three of them have a marvellous time running and jumping and playing on the common. It is when they lose the puppy that disaster strikes; but is this event which also leads them to their first fateful meeting with Percy and to the events which quickly follow on.

Jenny Koralek's first children's novel, with its lightness and sureness of touch, produces a book which is enjoyable and funny and finally moving. Peter Rush adds to the delicate humour and feel of the story with his appealing illustrations.
