Alfie the deerhound is a large grey puppy. He loves his boy Charlie, and cheese, and he’s very good at digging holes. But poor Alfie has got lost and he’s scared – of thunderstorms and being hungry and never seeing Charlie again . . .
Meanwhile, Charlie doesn’t know what to do – but one thing is for sure: he’ll never stop looking for his dear hound. Can Alfie ever find his way back to Charlie – and his great big squashy beanbag in the kitchen?
Written and illustrated by Jill Murphy, the creator of the much-loved Worst Witch series and picture book classics such as Peace at Last and The Large Family.
