Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Training for a dog show is never easy, but Murphy and Cheryl are determined to be ready for the agility contest in the big show. To get through the competition, Murphy must go across the plank, down the A-frame, in and out of the poles, through the tunnel, over the hurdle, and off the teeter-totter! After hard work and plenty of practice, Murphy is ready to face the obstacle course.

Everyone is rooting for him, but will Murphy make it through the course in good form?

Emily Bolam's illustrations perfectly capture the exciting real-life atmosphere of a dog show. A welcome and wonderful new story about our favorite dog, Murphy!
