Lily Laceby is nearly 90 and lives in a remote cottage with her dog, Butch Aggie. One wild winter night she drifts off to sleep. As she dreams peacefully of bygone days, Butch Aggie stirs, hackles raised, hearing strange noises. Who could be out on such a night? But Lily opens the door to a lovely surprise. A delightfully suspenseful story that children will enjoy again and again.
