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

When someone leaves a box of three Bichon Frise puppies outside Tails Up, Aunt Jenn asks Kat, Maya, and Grace to look after them and find them new homes. Best of all, they get to choose names for the pups! They pick three French names: Aimée, Chantal, and Bijou.

Calls begin to come in from people interested in adopting Bichon Frise puppies, and the girls meet some of the prospective owners after school. Aimée and Chantal are soon placed in loving homes. But what about shy little Bijou? Will they be able to find a home for him?
