The Big Little Book of Happy Sadness

The funny, touching story of an unlikely friendship from master storyteller Colin Thompson

George lives with his grandmother and a big empty space where his mother and father should be.

One Friday on his way home from school, George visits the animal shelter. There, in the very last cage, is Jeremy, a sad dog who looks as lost and lonely as George feels.

When Jeremy comes home to live with George and his granny, their whole lives change, and they learn that when it comes to love, its quality not quantity that counts.
