This book is about a invisible dog and only a little girl called Janie.

We enjoyed the ending, but we don't want tell you any more about it as it would spoil the story.

We think that someone aged between 7-10 would like to read it.

We would give it a score of 6-10 because there was no adventure.

I read this book with my class of 9 and 10 year olds. We adored it! We particularly enjoyed the cliff-hangers throughout the book. The supernatural theme that ran through the book, made it exciting and interesting. Our favourite characters were Mrs Garrow and Janie. Some people were a bit disappointed with the ending because they felt they were not given the answers that they were searching for. As a class, we would definitely recommend this book, and other Dick King Smith books, particularly The Hodgeheg and The Sheep Pig.

My 9 year old son has quite a few books by Dick-King Smith amongst his collection, and they never fail to entertain him (or me)! My son has always struggled to read fluently and we use these books at home to encourage his reading progress as the print is a good size and is never too daunting for him. These books also include black and white pictures which he also likes. We love Dick-King Smith books. He is a lovely author for children and all his stories are very imaginative and entertaining!

Bought this for our 5 year old daughter as she loves dogs and in particular, because it features a Great Dane. I enjoyed reading it to her and it touched on the themes of losing a pet, wanting another etc, which we could identify with. It would suit an older child reading the book alone but equally worked well for an adult to read to a 5 year old.

I read this book with my friends in class and I loved it. I thought Janie used her imagination well. I really liked Mrs Garrow always apearing when you least expext it.

Brilliant story, my 9 year old loves the Dick King-Smith books and they are in the school library too. I enjoy these 'dog' books as well and we read them together!

We bought this one as my son (7) had enjoyed The Pig Sheep (the book that inspired the film Babe, also by Dick King-Smith). We did one chapter each night - they are quite short so there is no loss of interest. The book is nicely illustrated and the story touches on some themes like considering what to do with your money. We were caught out by the ending as there were still a good number of pages to go - the remainder was a taster of another book: "can we get that one next, Dad?"...

My 6-year-old son was lent this by his school as reading practice. He didn't particularly enjoy it, and neither did I -- the slightly heavy-handed hints at supernatural goings on, the predictable coincidences, all that was a substitute for genuinely imaginative writing. Basically it reads like reading practice rather than a "real" story, if that makes sense.
