If you could have a puppy, what would you pick?
Kat, Maya and Grace dream about puppies. So helping out at Kat’s aunt’s dog-grooming salon is a dream come true!
Each story in this four-book collection follows the adventures of these girls and their encounters with dogs. Whether it’s a golden retriever who helps Kat better understand Grace, or a Shetland sheepdog who helps them find the home of a lost cocker spaniel, each dog teaches them something about the world around them.
Originally published as four separate chapter books in The Puppy Collection — Bailey’s Visit, Riley Knows Best, Murphy Helps Out and Bijou Needs a Home — this deluxe edition, complete with adorable illustrations, will please puppy lovers everywhere.
