The brown dog often visits Henry on rainy, grey afternoons. Usually he doesn't hang around for long. But this time the brown dog decides to stay and Henry needs to find a way to make him leave. Gina Inverarity's evocative text and Greg Holfeld's beautiful illustrations provide the perfect platform for young readers to think and talk about their feelings.
