Phoebe and Fred, by Nathaniel S. Johnson
Nobody that morning in the peaceful village of Harmony could have anticipated the approaching chaos.
It has been an uneventful summer, but by mid-morning, the serene country village of Harmony would be plunged into chaos and controversy. The Watson family, preparing breakfast, were startled by angry protests from an old sportscar at the back of their house, starting, stalling, and starting again.
The phone rang, “Henry, were you out with the bassets in your car this morning?””They got away from me and went solo.””The whole town’s talking!”
In his book Phoebe and Fred, author Nathaniel Johnson ushers readers into the extraordinary realm of Basset Hounds and displays how these uncommonly intelligent and affectionate animals might coax unsuspecting humans into their domain.
