Bill Richardson has created a hilarious cast of characters and a fanciful story that will appeal to a child's sense that the unlikely can really happen.

When the Littles decide it's time to get a dog, everyone has a specific purpose in mind. Papa wants Sally Dog Little to bark only when burglars come. Mama wants Sally Dog Little to walk with her every morning, afternoon, and evening. Twinkle Little wants Sally Dog Little to sleep on her bed and cuddle up close.

Sally Dog Little commences her working life and does what is expected of her. But then things go awry, and the formality of the Littles' household threatens to come undone when a ghost pirate and a ghost dog walk right through the wall. It's up to Sally Dog to restore order, but the odd nature of the mysterious intruders makes her task an especially challenging one.

Filled with wit and a sharp sense of the magic of the improbable, Bill
Richardson's wonderfully entertaining story is matched by illustrator Céline Malépart's playful and humorous take on what happens when circumstances demand extraordinary measures.
