Any child who has ever wanted a dog will identify with the two children in this story, who have to face all the usual objections from their parents when they ask for a do|g. Mum and Dad are particularly insistent that the dog they choose should have a pedigree and be a ‘proper dog.

The children have other ideas, however, and specifically seek out ‘a dog that nobody wants. And that is how they come by Courtney who moves in with his big trunk and begins cooking, serving at the table, playing the violin and even juggling to entertain the baby.

When Courtney vanishes one day along with his trunk the children dont lose faith and when they are rescued from their rubber dinghy while on holiday they feel sure that Courtney is not far away after all. Picking up a familiar theme in John Burninghams books, and one close to childrens hearts, Courtney is a old mongrel who nobody wants but he turns out to be a very special dog indeed with many talents.

It is clear from the charming illustrations that Courtney is a discerning dog with his bushy eyebrows and dignified stance – a dog with far more to offer than a pedigree! Children will love him. (Ages 3 and over) --Alison Jardine
