From Our Editors

Cindy has a small, furry and cute problem. She has just found a dark-grey and black puppy, but the home in which she lives doesn't allow dogs. She takes the puppy to the hospice where she works as a cleaning lady, where one of the patients names the soft puppy Smudge. But how can Cindy keep Smudge? Winner of the Mr. Christie's Book Award and the Canadian Children's Book Centre Our Choice award, How Smudge Came is a beautifully illustrated and lovingly told tale.
