A story about a little dog with the heart of a lion. From the bestselling author of a ‘A Dog Called Homeless’.

Leo dreams about being a hero. In his imagination he is a fearsome gladiator, but he wants to be a hero in real life.

When the boys at school dare Leo to do something he knows is wrong, he lets everybody down. How can he make things right again?

A little dog called Jack Pepper is missing and it will take a true hero to find him and bring him home…

Includes beautiful inside artwork from hugely talented illustrator, Gary Blythe.
