A Dog Called Scampi

£4.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

On his tenth birthday Duncan Lindsay rescues a puppy from a woodland pool near his home. He names the dog scampi and from that day on the two are inseparable. However, one fateful day, Duncan is exploring a rock pool when a huge wave knocks him into the sea. Scampi plunges to save him but instead of being grateful, Duncan is angry and bitter as the accident left him lame. Poor Scampi, feeling rejected, begins to look for friends further afield and then one day disappears....

Meta Mayne Reid began writing stories, articles and poems at school and has published more than twenty books for children and her work has been translated into Dutch, German and Braille.

The book is in good condition with foxing to its spine and edge and some wear and tear to its hardback cover.

A delightful children's book, the heart-warming story of a friendship between a boy and his dog.
