Also by Eva Ibbotson. He had wanted one for his last birthday and for the birthday before, and for Christmas, and now that his birthday was coming round again he wanted one more desperately than ever. He had read about dogs and dreamed about dogs; he knew how to feed them and how to train them. But whenever he asked his mother for a dog she told him not to be silly. How could we have a dog? Think of the mess; hairs on the carpet and scratch marks on the door, and the smell.

This was Eva Ibbotson’s last book before she died and is a fitting tribute to her remarkable talent. She has achieved the unachievable and written a story about animals that I actually enjoyed and not only that made me care about a group of fictional dogs, something I never thought I would say. A truly lovely story that will charm adults and entrance children.

Eva Ibbotson's books are always delightful, and her children's books are in particular a grand escape for an adult who feels a bit battered by the real world. Here we have a lonely little rich boy whose parents can't see why he's upset when the dog they've rented for one weekend just to give him "the dog experience" has to be returned. Hal refuses to accept this and takes off with the dog, along with a variety of other dogs from the shelter who are also yearning for homes.

Eva Ibbotson's last book is a canine classic. When his party yields nothing but the usual extravagances from Hamley's, a cake and a group of boys he doesn't really know, his disappointment leaves him deeply depressed

Eva Ibbotson's last book is a canine classic. When his party yields nothing but the usual extravagances from Hamley's, a cake and a group of boys he doesn't really know, his disappointment leaves him deeply depressed. So Hal's father hires a dog from Easy Pets – just for the weekend – and the boy thinks all his dreams have come true. The parents omit to tell him it's a temporary do. When Fleck is returned and Hal realises he has been duped, he forms a plan to rescue the dog and run away north to his grandparents.

Eva Ibbotson is my favourite children's book writer. And this, her last book, is brilliant . You care so much about the central character, care so much about the dogs he gathers around him, and the ending is wonderful. I have read just about all of Eva's children's books and this one is very impressive. She was an extremely imaginative writer who was a true craftsman at creating plots and subplots that weave together seamlessly. and his pup was named Scamp.

He's allowed to choose a dog at Easy Pets, a rent-a-pet agency (a fact his parents keep from him). The moment he sees the odd-looking terrier, he knows he's found a friend for life. But no one tells Hal that Fleck must be returned. When Hal wakes up on Monday morning, Fleck is gone. If dog and boy are to stay together they'll have to run away. . . .

My oldest grandson wanted a dog in the worst way. For 9 years of his life, he ate his heart out wishing for a dog. On his 10th birthday I couldn't stand it any longer, so I got him a little mixed breed dog that lo0oks just like the one on the front cover of this book... and his pup was named Scamp. It's been 3 years now, and when I saw this book I had to buy it for my grandson. The story is perfect, and the ending is even more so. What a beautiful story. My grandson has read the story twice already. Best book for a boy and a dog.

I was very sad to realise that Eva died several weaks after completing the manuscript but what an inspiration her life is and I think you can be so competent in your eighties crafting a masterpiece. Highly recommend for one and all, adults and children.

This book was so wonderful that I couldn't put it down. I had to stop at times because my eyes were wore out. I finished it in two afternoons. Ibbotson is one of my favorite authors. The story of the dog and boy kept me wanting to read just to see what would happen next and the ending was a happy one except for the bad people!
