A funny and engaging story about two dogs—one old and tiny and wise; one young and huge and boisterous—told in four short chapters by Jacky Davis, the bestselling author of the Ladybug Girl series.
A perfect choice for emerging readers, fans of Dav Pilkey’s Big Dog and Little Dog, and dog people everywhere!
Olive and Pekoe are best friends. Olive is an older dog who likes to take her time; Pekoe is a bouncy puppy with a nose for exploration. Together they make the perfect team. Pekoe fetches sticks for Olive, and Olive protects Pekoe from bigger, meaner dogs. They go on walks, encounter a chipmunk, and get caught in a rainstorm, among other adventures. Their escapades may be small but are nevertheless filled with excitement and love.
In four short and easy-to-read chapters (or walks), New York Times–bestselling author Jacky Davis explores the nature of friendship in all its humor and drama. Giselle Potter’s lively and engaging watercolors are the perfect match to the story.
Ideal for emerging readers, fans of Kelly DiPucchio’s Gaston, and anyone who loves dogs of all shapes and sizes!
Jacky Davis along with her husband David Soman, is the creator of the bestselling Ladybug Girl series, as well as Agent Lion, a picture book about a silly but determined detective. The author lives with her family in New York’s Hudson Valley. You can visit her at www.blackpolka.com.
