There are lots of dogs of all shapes and sizes at the animal shelter. But Kate and her mom and dad know they want Dave the moment they see him.

How can they take home just one dog when there are so many wonderful animals who need a home?
Bob Graham creates an original, endearing family in a touching story that will appeal to animal lovers everywhere.

In a spare urban fable, Bob Graham brings us one small boy, one loving family, and one miraculous story of hope and healing.
“No one saw the bird fall.”
In a city full of hurried people, only young Will notices the bird lying hurt on the ground. With the help of his sympathetic mother, he gently wraps the injured bird and takes it home. In classic Bob Graham style, the beauty is in the details: the careful ministrations with an eyedropper, the bedroom filled with animal memorabilia, the saving of the single feather as a good-luck charm for the bird’s return to the sky. Wistful and uplifting, here is a tale of possibility—and of the souls who never doubt its power.
One morning Kate bursts into her parents' bedroom. "Let's get a pup!" she cries. They all set off to the rescue centre where they see dogs of all shapes and sizes. Kate knows which one she wants the second she sees him. Small, cute and excited, to Kate, Dave is everything a dog could be.
