Brighten a Child’s Day
My highly talented Cocker Spaniel, Izzy dedicates some of her free time to writing to children as part of the Post Pals charity.
Each month Post Pals have a themed project, where you send a gift to one (or more) of the Pals based on that month’s theme.
But a dog would damage the expensive carpets in Hal’s glamorous home, and his wealthy parents refuse to consider one. Then they discover Easy Pets, a convenient dog-rental agency. Terrier Fleck arrives on Hal’s birthday, but when Hal discovers that his dog must be returned, he runs away. Hal and Fleck are joined by a group of pedigree breeds joyfully escaping from Easy Pets – among them is Otto, the wise and sombre St Bernard, and the fierce and exctable Pekinese Li-Chee. A large reward is offered for the missing boy, and soon Hal and his dogs are being chased across the counry by ruthless pursuers. Helped by a travelling circus, and the sympathetic children from an orphanage, they race for their freedom in a classic adventure in the tradition of 101 DALMATIANS. Every dog-loving child will adore this irresistible story from a truly great and much-loved children’s author.
We thought it a quite fitting gift to send from Izzy to 8 year old Nico and we’re hoping he likes it when he reads it!
