The Strange Disappearance of Mr. Toast - inscribed on front free endpaper in red ink: "For Lesley / from / Stuart Brent" - First edition, 1964 - "Mr. Toast was a golden retriever, and the Brent family was his personal responsibility. He never failed to devote his full time and attention to his duties, rounding up lost children, patiently accepting Baby Joe's hugs and kisses, even settling quarrels between the younger children with a few cuffs of a firm but gentle paw. (After the family arrives at Bark Point for their summer holiday), suddenly Mr. Toast was nowhere to be found! Had he arrived with them? Had he leaped out of the car to go off chasing rabbits as soon as the car door was opened? No one was sure. Where could Mr.Toast be?" 2.

The story of the unearthing of a prehistoric monster by the entire Brent family makes for exciting and enlightening reading." Very minor edge rubbing.
