Description: Superdog's world seems rather limited, being tied up to a post all day. He learns from a reindeer that he will receive a surprise for Christmas, and begins to wonder what it could possibly be. A new collar, a cosy bed, perhaps some merry canine friends, or maybe a little freedom…? Children will ponder over – and adults smile at – this wry adventure which places a child's expectation of Christmas alongside an adult's experience that sometimes what you already have is better than what you desire.
Lovely colour illustrations throughout.
Sheen pictorial covers with illustrated flaps. 'Invisible' scratches to front and rear. Negligible bump to upper-right corner, otherwise all corners and spine are straight. Internally, the book is as new.
