Has this puppy landed on his paws?
Dougal the Labradoodle – a complete hypochondriac and Boris Johnson’s #1 fan – arrives in Greenwich with great expectations.
He longs to travel the world on Virgin Atlantic, dine at royal banquets and either become a superstar and party the night away or work as a doorman at the Savoy. Imagine all the treats!
Behaviour classes were never on his wish-list, neither were cliff-hanging experiences on the Thames, booze cruises to Calais or obsessions for eating socks. And as for traipsing across London – he most certainly faced mortal danger!
Can Dougal survive life with a chaotic owner and her eccentric friends? Can he deal with his jealousy when a foster puppy comes to stay?
And as for his dreams of fame and treats, will they ever come true?

Unfortunately for Howard, mad scientists, government conspiracies and alien invasions have no respect for the plans of 11-year-old boys.
