Lara had always wished she was a dog, and one day, just for a short time, she actually became one. This is how it happened.

In a tall mulberry brick terrace house on the harbour that Lara explores while her mother cleans, Lara meets Pierre, a boy about her age with a beautiful antique puppet theatre. With his puppets, he tells her a story about a boy whose family has been eaten by wolves. The boy is lost. He needs to find his grandmother. Lara takes the part of a dog but, suddenly, she can no longer tell where she ends and Dog begins. Or is she Wolf? Caught up in Pierre's story, Lara has to fight to protect her new friend but also her identity - and to help Pierre find his home.

Pierre's Not There is a lyrical, captivating, imaginative and highly original story that can be read on many levels.
