Exciting adventures, and sheer heaven for dog lovers

If you missed the first book about Walker, here’s a quick catch up: Walker is dog mad, but can’t have one as Mum is allergic.  When he sets up as a dog walker, he realises something amazing: he can talk to dogs and they can talk to him. In this episode he and his growing band of dog best friends find themselves up against a ruthless, if not very bright, band of crooks, after money hidden away by corrupt landowner Arlington Wherewithal. Together Walker and the dogs should be able to outwit the baddies but it’s touch and go, and they’ll still have to work out where Arlington hid his ill-gotten gains. The story is action packed, enormously satisfying, and absolute heaven if you love dogs. The book features Rayner’s illustrations throughout and the final pages show you how to draw Walker and Stella the spaniel, an added treat.
