Summary

A boy learns the hard life lesson of death after caring for a stray dog

When Stevie Rooster is mean about Nick's old dog dying, Nick throws Stevie's best conker into the pond. But Grandma says there's a better way to get back at Stevie - become Conker King of Jubilee Park. Nick must use some conkers from the tree in the old scrapyard.

And in that scrapyard is a skinny, starving dog who looks just like Nick's old pet. Can Nick rescue the animal and become conker champion?

This is a moving story about grief, redemption and the love of a family pet.
