Publisher Comments:

Ellie Martin fiercely resists her new dog's charms

It isn't Ellie's fault, really. She's always wanted a puppy, and now that she's almost nine, finally old enough to get one, Preston is foisted on her. What's more, her parents say that this fully grown mutt that Great-aunt Margaret can no longer keep will have to do. They can't very well have a dog and a puppy. Although heartbroken and resentful, Ellie does see Preston's virtues. Still, she refuses to accept him as her dog. Then Ellie's resistance almost costs her Preston, and at last she embraces him. Colby Rodowsky's story about a child's change of heart has just enough tenderness — and just enough bite — to satisfy young dog lovers. Captivating drawings by Thomas F. Yezerski highlight the experience.

Synopsis:

Eight-year-old Ellie desperately wants a puppy, and she's not happy when her parents tell her they're adopting a full-grown dog named Preston who belonged to a distant relative. Gradually, Preston wins Ellie over with her loyalty and sense of fun. Illustrations.
