BASCOMBE: The Fastest Hound Alive

Email this review


Sensible Bascombe is reluctant to leave the bottom step of the back porch where he spends his days sleeping peacefully. But if he doesn't wake up and learn to run, his master, who wants to use him as a hunting dog, will sell him. So although he finds this quite beneath his dignity, he takes a running lesson from Herbert and Sam, the rabbits, and on the day of the hunt proves himself to be the fastest hound alive. He doesn't, however, catch anything because the pursued animals turn out to be his two rabbit friends, but his master, tired of running after Bascombe, doesn't care.
