Upstairs into dining-room. Family not finished lunch yet. Young Mr Brown throws a bread pellet at me, hitting me on the nozzle. An insult.
I swallow the insult.
A Dog Day is narrated by a lovable scamp of a terrier as he goes about his day rolling in mud, eating what he shouldn't, and generally wreaking havoc – all while keeping the Brown household wrapped around his paw.
Featuring Cecil Aldin's delightful original illustrations, A Dog Day is filled with warmth, humour and more than a little bit of mischief. First published in 1902, it's a timeless classic that continues to enchant readers of all ages.
