A Dog Day is narrated by a lovable scamp of a terrier as he goes about his day rolling in mud, eating what he shouldn't, and generally wreaking havoc - all while keeping the Brown household wrapped around his paw. First published in 1902 and featuring Cecil Aldin's delightful original illustrations, it is a timeless classic that continues to enchant readers of all ages.
