About This Book
Charles and Lizzie Peterson are very good with puppies. They want one of their own, but their mom isn't ready for them to have one full time. For now, they help take care of puppies that need to find a new home. They are a foster family for young dogs.
The Peterson kids hear about Snowball. Someone left the fluffy puppy all alone at a gas station in a tattered, old box. Snowball is sick and hungry. He needs a family of his own. Can Charles and Lizzy find one that is just right?
With strong dog facts and helpful puppy tips included in every book, this series is not only fun to read but a great resource for prospective or current junior dog owners!
Note from author Ellen Miles:
Every puppy is different. The fun part about writing The Puppy Place is putting those distinct personalities front and center, really treating the dogs as primary characters. I love getting to know each puppy the Petersons foster, and I hope readers do, too.
