Meet all kinds of puppies in this sweet new series, perfect for newly independent readers!

It's a new school year and things haven't been great for Kat so far. She's being teased, and her best friend Maya is in a different class. But things start to look up when her Aunt Jenn opens a kennel and dog-grooming salon, and the girls are allowed to help out with a puppy named Bailey!

The girls do such a great job that Aunt Jenn asks them to come back and help again in the future. They decide to start a scrapbook of their favourite puppies so they can be ready for the day they get to adopt one themselves!

Lively illustrations, relatable storylines, and puppies galore make this series perfect for newly independent readers.
