Product description

Dog wasn’t really a dog, she was a human girl. But she was called Dog because that is what Uncle had always called her.

Dog has never been outside of nasty Uncle’s pet shop. She sleeps in a box on a floor and has no idea what the world outside looks like. Then in a flurry of colour and feathers, Carlos the parrot arrives in the shop and her world as she knows it changes for ever.

Managing to escape, Dog, Carlos and her best friend Esme the coati set out, in search of the same thing, somewhere they belong, somewhere they can call home. But the world is a huge, dangerous place, and they face danger and adventure at every turn . . .

A spirit-soaring tale of adventure, friendship and belonging that will appeal to all lovers of Michael Morpurgo and Roald Dahl.

    This story is about a girl’s uncle calling her dog so she can blend in with all the other animals in the pet shop that he owns. Dog does not speak and has to hide when a customer comes in or she will be taking to a very dark place. Luckily Dog has the courage to run away Unfortunately she does not have the sense that their are many dangers in the real world…

    This book was very different to how I first imagined it. The characters came off the page and the story cam alive. Loved it.

    This was a great story about Dog and her animal friends. I thought it was going to be really sad but it was exciting too. I really liked Carlos because he is so clever!
