Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bobby Quinn is shy. In fact, he’s so shy, he has trouble making friends. But that changes when he gets a squirmy little puppy for his birthday. Unlike Bobby, Lucy isn’t shy at all. And to his surprise, she keeps dragging him into all sorts of adventures—and friendships, too!

“Depicted with humor and realism. . . . The respectful attention given to their peer’s difficulties and progress will be much appreciated by newly and almost independent readers.”—The Bulletin

“Bobby’s fears of new people and situations are skillfully captured, and the story is entertaining and well plotted. Bobby is an endearing character, and he and his dog are an appealing combination.”—School Library Journal
