Dumpling by Dick King-Smith


Instead of being long and sausage-shaped like her brothers and all other dachshunds, Dumpling is short and, well, dumpy. She wishes more than anything else in the world that she could be more like her brothers. So when a witch’s cat grants her wish, Dumpling is thrilled. Until the spell goes wrong, that is, and she grows rather longer than she’d hoped to . . .
