A sweet and funny story about a city-dwelling dog, a day when everything goes wrong, a curious rescue and a surprising gift.
Milo’s life is almost entirely unremarkable. He lives in a solid kennel in an okay part of town. Every other day he has a job delivering parcels.
Then Milo’s life is turned upside down by an argument with his friend Snombo, followed by a strange wild storm that leaves him and his kennel in a precarious place.
So begins Milo’s surprisingly remarkable journey back to his friends.
A warm and whimsical adventure by the acclaimed creator of My Uncle’s Donkey and Nobody Owns the Moon.
