Once upon a time there were two grandmothers. One wrote books for children, and the other illustrated books for children. They had two grandsons - Nat and Will. One day they decided they would collaborate their talent and write a book dedicated to their two grandsons, and they even made the main character's name an anagram of the two boys -Tillawn. Till, for short, was very sad because his dog has disappeared, and he's worried he'll never find her. Along comes a strange little old man who seems to appear from nowhere and calls himself a "finder." He's come to help Till find his beloved dog, but he sure has some weird ways of doing things. This is a quick read, with some quirky twists and turns, and even has two lady characters that are very similar to the grandmothers. Good book for 3rd-5th graders.
