In our story we see a grandmother and her dog, apparently a normal homely scene. They live together in a small house and go for walks together, but on closer inspection we start to wonder why this tiny lady has such a large dog. Hasn’t she noticed that the dog has grown because he still has this baby dog basket. In our short the dog has had enough of his tiny basket and uses his charm and might to persuade his mistress to let him take a nap in her big, comfy chair.
Annie M.G. Schmidt wrote the story of Tom and Nonna in 1967. It was first published in a educational book for elementary school students.
