Chapter 9 Small Number and the Dog, the Rabbit, and a Sack of Carrots

Small Number is a young boy who gets into a lot of mischief. He lives with his family in a house near the creek while his grandmother lives in a house on the other side of the creek.

The story was inspired by the well known puzzle of the wolf, the goat and the cabbage.

Except being Small Number's best friend, another role of Curly Hair, Small Number's dog, is to remind the reader about a, now extinct, dog breed known as the Salish Wool Dog or Comox dog.
