What do you do when you're STUCK INSIDE and all the fun is outside? Tilly has to stay in until a big storm passes by. Her pup Toby has to stay in until his sore paw gets better. And there is absolutely, positively nothing fun to do. Then a hopeful Toby brings Tilly his leash, and Tilly gets an idea! With delightful illustrations, this sweet story of exploration, creativity, and seeing old things in a new light will spark the imagination of any child who feels stuck.

The illustrations have a lovely retro feel to them, too, and really bring out the lovely relationship between the child and her dog, and that feeling of being 'stuck inside'. A lovely picture book that I will be saving to share on rainy days!
