A Newbery Honor-winning Author

The summer after fourth grade, a lonely girl wants just one thing: a dog. She tries everything to convince her parents to let her have one, but nothing works. She is sure that she will spend another whole summer alone - dogless and friendless - with no one to share her adventures. Just when things look bleakest, a charming dog finds her. "Jeff" works his magic on everyone in the house and becomes part of the family, but it's soon evident that he has a nose for trouble.

Available only in The Literacy Bridge 5.
