Zoe and Beans: Where is Binky Boo? by Chloe Inkpen, Mick Inkpen

Zoe loves her doll Molly, but so does her dog, Beans. It's become a bit of a problem. And it all began when Beans lost his favourite toy, Binky Boo. Will Zoe and Beans ever find him? Let's hope so, because Beans won't give up the doll until they do, and poor Molly isn't meant to be a dog's toy. She's getting very stinky!
