Amelia really wants a dog, and she knows just what he is going to look like. Unfortunately, her parents don't feel the same. Persistence is Amelia's middle-name as she tries some tricky methods to keep reminding her parents of her desire. Eventually she hatches a very elaborate yet effective trap that her parents can't find a way out of. Simple yet cute illustrations back-up this clever little story of a young girl's determination to have her very own puppy.
