Jake and his family live on the farm that once belonged to the grandfather that they all call Billy. Billy's favourite memory is of the sod house where he was born. When a dog appears on the farm one day, Billy insists she belongs to him, names her Lucy and they become close friends. Lucy digs up an old brick of sod and Billy asks Jake to build him a little sod house. Jake has no idea how to make a sod house nor does he much want to do it in the summer heat. When Billy ends up in hospital, Jake decides to build the sod house, but how will he ever do it on his own? Reviewed by BPL volunteer LS.
