More than anything in the world Edward wanted a dog. And second only to that was his desire to be free of the constant plaguing of Martin Hastings, the bully of Barkham Street.
Then into the heart of both these problems came Uncle Josh, an unabashed hobo, and Argress, a collie, who was his traveling companion. How Edward convinced his parents that he was responsible enough to have a pet, and how Argess was instrumental in solving the problem of Martin make a story boys will know is written about their own world, expressly for them. Leonard Shortall's delightful pictures add fun and warmth to this story of a boy and a dog.
