about

A sweet introduction to owning a pet that is perfect for readers of The Most Magnificent Thing and A Ball for Daisy.
 
When a little girl gets a new puppy, they have a lot to learn about each other. The new friends can be shy, messy, and sometimes get into trouble. They get lost, but they always get found. Their friendship may be a lot of work—but at the end of the day, they love each other!
