Publisher Comments:

After losing Dandy, her family's beloved horse, Kristine decides that she will never get close to another pet again. It's just too heartbreaking. So when her father surprises her with a new puppy for her birthday, Kristine is furious! With a new sister on the way, who need a wriggling, messy, noisy yellow ball of fur to look after? But how can an animal-loving girl resist the sweet brown eyes of a puppy that just wants to be loved?

Synopsis:

After losing her family's beloved horse, Kristine decides that she will never have another pet. When her father surprises her with a new puppy, Kristine learns to to take a chance and open her heart again in this latest novel by the beloved author of "Red Dog."

About the Author

andlt;Bandgt;Bill Wallaceandlt;/Bandgt; grew up in Oklahoma. Along with riding their horses, he and his friends enjoyed campouts and fishing trips. Toasting marshmallows, telling ghost stories to scare one another, and catching fish was always fun.andlt;BRandgt;One of the most memorable trips took place on the far side of Lake Lawtonka, at the base of Mt. Scott. He and his best friend, Gary, spent the day shooting shad with bow and arrows, cutting bank poles, and getting ready to go when their dads got home from work.andlt;BRandgt;Although there was no "monster" in Lake Lawtonka, one night there andlt;Iandgt;wasandlt;/Iandgt; a "sneak attack" by a rather large catfish tail. Checking the bank poles was not nearly as fun or "free" after that point, but it was the inspiration for this story.andlt;BRandgt;Bill Wallace has won nineteen children's state awards and been awarded the Arrell Gibson Lifetime Achievement Award for Children's Literature from the Oklahoma Center for the Book.
