A true story!

One fine morning, Alayne watches Tia and Charlie wander down the garden wagging their tails and sniffing the grass. But only Charlie returns. What has happened to Tia?
This sophisticated picture book tells the story of a missing dog, a best friend, and the community who helps them.

“Don’t give up. Let’s keep looking. We’ll all help.”
