When Lilly's brother Macdonald cannot have a real dog, Lilly helps out by getting him a robot puppy. This clever toy can come when called and play fetch. Of course, it must never get wet. So when Kendall's real puppy goes out on the ice and cannot get back, Lilly finds herself in a dilemma. The robot puppy is capable of bringing the frightened puppy to safety, but the ice might break and then it would never work again. On the other hand, the real puppy might get swept away on the river ice if they don't save him.
Brenda Bellingham is the author of many books for children, including 3 previous Lilly titles.
