'There was once a boy who turned into a dog. The boy's name was Eric Banks; he was ten years old. The dog he turned into was a Norfolk terrier.'

This extraordinary event takes place one perfectly ordinary summer's evening just after Eric has gone to bed. When his parents discover him, they assume, of course, that some strange dog has got into the house, and put him out: 'Shoo!'

What becomes of Eric -- the adventures he has with his best friend, Roy Ackerman, and their joint efforts to puzzle out the reason for his transformation -- makes a very funny and entirely believable book. For readers of 8 upwards.
