The book seems set up to explore a new pet relationship, yet it works on any friendship level and perhaps even a new-sibling introduction. Totally, infectiously ebullient.

Synopsis

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!
 
Experience the excitement and mystery surrounding a new pet (and a new friend) in this joyful picture book from acclaimed author and illustrator Karl Newsom Edwards.


"Cheerfully ingenuous...Totally, infectiously ebullient."--Kirkus Reviews, Starred review

"The concise, cheery text gently explains what to expect when a newcomer joins the household, [and] the illustrations are cartoonlike and sweet. The curly-haired, brown-skinned little girl and the large-eared, spotted puppy make an adorable pair as they learn what it means to gain a new companion."--School Library Journal
