Product description

Stanley’s not sure when his problems started. Either when his mum died, or when his brother went off to fight in the war. All he knows is that now Dad acts like he’s completely invisible – unless he’s going mad at him, that is. The only friend Stanley can turn to is his dog, Rocket. And when things at home get even worse, Stanley enlists in the army as a dog handler. As Stanley faces the horrors of war, his dog’s loyalty is the only thing he can rely on. Will he survive the guns and make up with his father again?

  • A brilliant First World War story full of gripping details
  • Ideal for fans of Megan Rix and Morpurgo’s War Horse
  • A powerful story of conflict, courage, family and dogs
  • Longlisted for the Carnegie and Branford Boase Award
