It is set in the Eastern England town of Norwich, which is the county town of Norfolk, and it features a very special dog called Hector, who is a truly remarkable little dog, a beagle called Hector.
Hector was born with a problem that meant one of his front legs was disabled. It was almost certain that he was doomed to spend his life living in a dogs' home.
But that was not to be the case, because a very special family came along with a very special American made canine wheelchair.
Readers can follow Hector as he faces life with his family as he learns to operate his wheelchair, and to cope with his disability.
You'll follow Hector and his brother Reggie on their many adventures including some dangerous situations involving railway lines, angry workmen and quick flowing rivers. Sometimes rescued by their human companions.
There are some lovely images and illustrations (by Sophie Fletcher) plus a photograph of Hector in his American canine wheelchair that accompany this wonderful and very uplifting story.
It's published by Matador at £7.99 and if your'e looking for a suitable Christmas present for a dog lover, then this is it!
