'Joyce Dunbar is one of the best writers for children today.' (The Guardian)A powerful and personal story from Joyce Dunbar about what it's like to experience hearing difficulties. Dylan can't hear as well as he used to be able to and he doesn't want to be different from his friends - he wants to be able to hear like everyone else.

As his hearing gets worse he becomes more and more isolated from his friends.

Luckily his dog Pluto is there to keep him down to earth...

This heartwarming story from Joyce Dunbar has beautiful black-and-white illustrations by John Shelley and is perfect for children who are developing as readers.
