Format: Paperback
The story is about a girl called Janie who wants a dog but when she was little she had a dog a Great Dane puppy but it died when Janie was only 2. He died of kidney failure and his name was Rupert.

Janie finds Rupert's old collar and lead then pretends that she has a dog but it really is invisible.

I think it is a good story because it is really funny and the book tells you some one might be a witch in the story.

My favorite characters are Janie and Miss Garrow. I like Janie because she is funny and nosey too. Also she reminds me of me because I love dogs and so does Janie.

I recommend the book to people who like funny stories and dogs.

Format: Paperback
I am reading this to my 5 year old son as a bedtime story, though it would also be suitable for an older child to get reading practise. There are sufficient black and white sketches to keep him interested, nice short chapters to enable me to break it up into bedtime story sized chunks, and the theme is familiar to most children; yearning for something you can't have, in this case Janie wants a great dane dog. Unusually for a child's story, we are privy to parents' discussions about their child, and whether they should let her have what she wants. Seeing things from the parents point of view is an interesting angle absent from most children's stories.
The story is holding my son's interest, and we are both enjoying the book.

Young Jamie's heart's desire is to own a dog, but her parents will not let her have one. That's why she invents her invisible dog which gets her parents slightly worried. Will her dream of having a real dog come true somehow? Have a good guess or listen to the tape!

My 8 year old son enjoyed this book but it was probably best for the young lady in the house! It's an enjoyable quick read. Could do with having some good twists but nonetheless a pleasant book for the kiddies to read.

The story:
Janie used to have a dog called Rupert but he died of kidney failure when she was only two years old. Janie has an imaginary dog called Henry and he is a Great Dane - just like Rupert!

About the author:
Dick King Smith is a famous children's author who writes mainly terrific tales about animals. He is the creator of Babe the Gallant pig, which has been turned into a movie, Dick King Smith lives on a farm in Gloucestershire and has been writing since 1978. When I am older I will do a PHD on him, hopefully, because he is one of my favourite authors.
