One Dog and His Boy by Eva Ibbotson

Let’s face it, every child would love his or her own special dog, one who followed them around, slept on their bed and was their best friend. Hal’s parents have so far resisted his entreaties for a pet until they discover the pet rental agency ‘Easy Pet’ and Fleck joins the household. But he’s only rented, so when it’s time to send him back Hal and Fleck go on the run. Lots of fantastic adventures follow in this heart-warming read. It’s hardcover but it’s worth it.

Great for ages 8 plus
