It's a Dog's Life

A funny, heartwarming animal story from a master storyteller, perfect for children learning to read.

Lula always likes me to go with her to the end of the lane. She loves a bit of a cuddle and a lick or two before the school bus comes.

“Oh Russ,” she whispers. “A horse. It’s all I want for my birthday.” And I’m thinking – excuse me, but what’s so great about a horse? Isn’t a dog good enough?”

The touching tale of one girl and her dog exploring farm life, from Britain’s best-loved children’s author, Michael Morpurgo.
