Lucy Rescued

Harriet Ziefert (author), Barroux (illustrator)

Publisher: Blue Apple Books ISBN: 9781609051877

Lucy has been adopted by a nice family. "Wha-ooo-ooo-roo!" Lucy howls - all day, all night, and even in between. What does Lucy need? A comfy bed, special treats, lullabies? Lucy has a family, but helping her feel at home is a little trickier. This story portrays that growing-up-moment when a kid steps outside of her own concerns and tries to help someone she doesn't totally understand. Add in a dash of drama and mystery, a little canine craziness, and a session with a dog psychologist, and you've got a bright and funny "new pet" story that's simply wise and wisely simple.
