Miss Wilhelmina Moon is a dog governess. At her first placement, on a small island off the coast of France, her new charges - 67 dogs of all shapes, sizes and colours - run wild. Armed with patience and a passion for teaching, as well as her companions, Mitford the monkey and Petunia the French bulldog, Miss Moon soon imparts 20 important lessons to her furry brood. Some are practical, some are playful, one or two are a little unusual, but all are necessary for the raising of happy, healthy and well-mannered dogs (and humans).
