This is a beautifully written story about a little child whose parents are divorced. As the child moves between each house, so does her dog, Fred. Fred is the constant companion and confidant. What is particularly interesting about this story is that the dog presents the challenge for the parents, the child asserts her authority in a loving manner and together they find a suitable resolution. It is told cheerfully with warm watercolour illustrations.
