Melly is Austin's dog -- lovable, a little rambunctious, and BIG. Like any good team, Austin and Melly look out for each other. But one afternoon Austin finds that the unthinkable has happened -- Melly's run away! Can he find her?
More than a funny tale of a small boy and a fuzzy creature twice his size, That Dog Melly! relates a child's important step towards mastering the world. The story is accompanied by big, action photographs and is told in Austin's own words.
