Philippa Pearce's poignant story of a young boy who longs for a pet dog.

In A Dog So Small young Ben Blewitt is desperate for a dog.

He's picked out the biggest and best dogs from the books in the library - and he just knows he's going to get one for his birthday.

Ben is excited when the big day arrives, but he receives a picture of a dog instead of a real one!

But the imagination can be a powerful thing, and when Ben puts his to work, his adventures really begin!
