Product Description
Honour Book for the 2020 CBCA Awards Book of the Year for Early Childhood

If you can't have a puppy, maybe the next best thing is to be a puppy.

'Can I please, please, please have a dog?' asked Billy.
'Would you walk it every day and wash it if it got dirty?'
'I would, I promise!' said Billy.


Billy wants a dog. He really really really wants one.
Billy's parents aren't so sure. So one morning, Billy takes matters into his own paws.

A gloriously funny, warm and true story from the creators of Puddle Hunters.
