Narrated by the unknown main character this is a charming story about a boy who wants more than anything to have his own dog. The narrator has been told to stay home and clean his room while his parents leave to bring back a surprise. They leave absolutely, positively no clues. So what’s the surprise? A pre-named(Larry), older, rescued dog with an enormous tail and a very questionable pedigree. The problem was that he wanted a dog he could be proud of. A big dog. A tough dog. A smart dog. Not a used dog. He pulls himself together and before long he realizes that Larry’s tail is no ordinary tail. The story unfolds within an idealized setting: a suburban neighbourhood, a boys bedroom and a tree house in the backyard. Readers will enjoy watching the unnamed narrator change his attitude from “a used dog” to “my dog”. They will find themselves wishing for a Labracadabra of their very own.
