The Brockets Get a Dog: Beyond the Stars
A humorous short story from the collection, BEYOND THE STARS, written by an internationally bestselling author
Abigail Crumb is forever making mistakes at the veterinary surgery where she works after school, and now she’s on her final warning. So when she loses – and then finds again – one of the puppies in her care, she doesn’t tell her boss; she’s saving up for a houdah for her elephant, after all, and knows she has to hide the puppy if she wants to keep her job. But how will she keep her secret?
After several chance encounters with Henry Brocket – a forlorn little boy who’s always dressed as a pilot and is obsessed with Biggles – and discovering why he’s so sad, Abigail suddenly realises what she must do.
