Ollie is small – like a pickling jar or a shoebox.
Augustus is big – like a fridge or a table.

They did most things together, including cycling, painting, dressing up, digging (Ollie’s favourite thing) and stick collecting (Augustus’s favourite thing). But Ollie is about to start school, and he has one major concern: who will keep Augustus company? He decides to search for a playmate for his enormous companion, but good friends are hard to find.


A funny, heartwarming story about Ollie’s determination to make sure his big dog, Augustus, is okay when he’s at school.
