Written and Illustrated by Quoc Tran - 1996, 28 pages, hardback, written in English and Vietnamese.

From the front flap -
Growing up in Vietnam during the warring years did not stop these three children from enjoying one of the most exciting moments of their lives: buying a puppy. Nho wanted to get one just like their old dog, Milou, while his older brother wanted a black puppy with white spots on its head, but Brother Dung had other ideas...

But the reality of war, although seemed so far removed from their plan at the time, did reach the children and their exciting endeavor in a most unexpected way...

In every child's heart there is an image of a puppy reaching out to lick a tender face, there is the never changing melody of the crickets celebrating the coming rain.
