Picture Book Hardback. Chancho's parents were a Boxer and a Mastiff, and he is an odd combination of the two. His poor master is so sad when the crops fail and Chancho wants desperately to help out. Perhaps if he could whistle? He finds a tin whistle in the grass but swallows it accidentally and Pablo is so frightened of the sound his dog makes, he bolts the door against him. (happy ending though) Such an ugly and appealing dog, and the illustrations are just right. ABE Heritage Seller since 1996; conservative AB condition grading.
