Obi's on a mission to go where no gerbil has gone before - outside the house!
There's a new pet at Obi the gerbil's house, and he's bigger, furrier, and more slobbery than Obi. And he's getting all the attention. But when the puppy escapes out the door and runs away, Obi sets out on a mission to bring him back. There are many obstacles, from a hungry owl to a giant dog to snarky cats in Obi's own backyard. But with the perseverance and pluck she demonstrated in the popular first Obi book, Obi overcomes the problems and brings the puppy safely home. With clever cartoon illustrations to punch up the comedy, this funny, adventurous sequel will leave you squeaking for more.
