About the Author:

Philippa Pearce grew up in a millhouse near Cambridge and read English and history at Girton College. She was a scriptwriter-producer for the BBC, a children's book editor and reviewer, a lecturer, a storyteller and freelance writer for radio and newspapers as well as writing some of the best-loved books of the 20th century.

From AudioFile:

Ben believes his grandfather's promise of a dog for his birthday despite the fact that he has no place to keep one. His disappointment at receiving a picture of a dog instead will feel very real to children who've longed in vain for a pet. Jenny Agutter adroitly narrates the twists and turns of this story, expertly capturing Ben's longing and discouragement, as well as a sense of mystery as he imagines his way to owning a pet. Agutter's perfect pacing and fully developed characters will speak to children who must turn from a world of fantasy and the impossible to embrace what is real and possible.
