Danny REALLY wants a dog.
He wants a dog so much that he DREAMS about them.
Danny and the Dream Dog is a book about finding friendship in unexpected places. Danny dreams of having a dog but, with Mum at work and Danny at school, Mum says they can’t have one. One day, when a new neighbour moves next door, Mum volunteers Danny to take the neighbour’s dog for a walk every day after school.
Danny dreams about the dog and can’t wait to meet him. However, this pup isn’t exactly what Danny had in mind.
The dog’s name is Max and he certainly isn’t the kind of dog Danny has been dreaming about. Max is an older dog, a little bit scruffy and a little bit smelly too. He likes to chase rabbits and gets himself into all sorts of trouble. However, Danny soon realises that whilst Max might not be his DREAM DOG he’s definitely his best friend.
