Like Morpurgo set amid Hurricane Katrina. Boy meets dog. Then a great storm strikes… Tyrone Roberts dreams of having a dog. And when his family’s car hits a stray on the way to church, it looks like his wish has come true. Buddy is the perfect pet – until Hurricane Katrina hits New Orleans. The family must flee, and leave Buddy behind. After the storm, Tyrone’s family come home. They find a community struggling to rebuild their lives… and Buddy gone. But Tyrone won’t give up the quest to find his best friend… Another triumph from the author of The Great Wide Sea: a powerful story of hope, courage and knowing when to let go.
