After her dog disappears into the gutter of the book, Bella calls for help. But when the helpers disappear too, Bella realizes it will take more than a tug on the leash to put things right. Cleverly using the physicality of the book, this title is inventive, ingenious, and just pure kid-friendly fun. Full color.
