The Lovereading4Kids comment
How a lonely and unloved little dog proves his worth and so becomes a proper pet is a touching story. Scruffy and shaggy, the little dog is all alone in world – except for the fleas that never leave him. He is chased away from everywhere; no one wants to play with him just because he is so very scruffy. And then he makes a friend. When it looks like they are going to be forced to part, Fleabag steps in and does something very brave and sensible. Now he has a home, a family and, finally, no more fleas. Only the name Fleabag sticks. And it suits him!
Shortlisted for the Blue Peter Award for ‘the funniest story with pictures’.
Fleabag by Helen Stephens
There was once a dog who had no name. What he did have was fleas, but they weren't much company. The dog longs for a family. At last he sees one that looks just right - with a brother and sister to play with him. But they shoo him away. It's not till the little boy runs away from home, that he can finally win his way into their hearts - and home.
