Ben and his pet dog, Aggie, are back with another adventure in three short chapters just right for beginning readers.
Ben and Aggie are playing fetch in the park. When Ben throws too far, Aggie doesn't come back! Ben looks and looks, but he cannot find her. It is the worst day ever.
Ben's sadness turns into determination as he retraces his steps, makes posters, and enlists other people to help turn Aggie from a lost pup a found one.
Art in pen, ink and watercolor shows the characters and their emotions clearly in a faux childlike drawing style. -Kirkus
The book is split into three chapters for early readers, appropriately named "The Bad Day," "The Awful Night," and "Found!" Dormer's humorous pen, ink, and watercolor cartoons add to the charm of this story. Perfect for newly independent readers, the short sentences and limited vocabulary will help children build confidence. -School Library Journal.
