Product description

Barney the dog lives on a narrowboat with his owner, Jim. He loves cruising up and down the canals and rivers, meeting new people and having grand adventures. But when Jim’s grandson, Freddie, comes to stay, Barney knows that something isn’t right. Jim doesn’t seem happy, and then he starts sleepwalking – a risky activity when you live on a boat. Barney is determined to keep a careful eye on him. But what can a little dog do when disaster strikes? A warm-hearted adventure with an exciting water setting, written by classic author Linda Newbery.
