AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Arthur is a very ordinary brown dog in Mrs Humber's pet shop. All the other animals find homes, but nobody wants Arthur. So he tries to be a rabbit, a snake, a fish ... in fact anything, so someone would give him a home with a pair of old slippers to chew'. (Source: publisher's blurb.)
