A heart-warming tale about a boy and his new best friend by Linda Newbery for Egmont's red banana series. Tim really wants a dog. There's only one problem - his sister. She's allergic to animals. When Tim meets silly, scruffy old Whatnot in the park one day, he knows that this is the dog for him. How are he and Grandad going to find a way to keep him? Red bananas are chapter books for newly fluent readers, suitable for NC Level 3 readers. They are carefully designed illustrated books for both entertainment and education, supporting children's understanding of how to read longer books. Red bananas introduce similes and wordplay to encourage an understanding of more literary concepts.
