In the summer of 1966, Charley and her little brother Alex, are walking their dog Manfred on the beach when they notice two old men staring out to sea. Manfred's habit of chasing things brings the children and the men together and slowly Charley and Alex learn about their Mother's past and why their wooden toy dog is so special to her. Another hear-warming story by Michael Morpurgo.
