‘He knew in his heart that the dog belonged to someone else, but at the same time he felt quite strongly that the dog ought to be his...’

When Kel decides to borrow the magnificent bull terrier Brut for the weekend, he has no idea where that choice will lead him and his family—as well as Brut’s real family, Caspian, Spirit and Skye.

He soon regrets his decision, but returning Brut is not so simple. The search for Brut leads the children into increasing danger, requiring courage they never knew they had and exposing the fears and frailties of the adults around them.

Answers to Brut is a thrilling story about loyalty and our responsibility for our actions, our families, and our best friends.
