Truman The Dog

by Debbi Michiko Florence (illus. by Melanie Demmer)

“T” is for Truman, tricks, and TROUBLE! Truman the black lab might be an older rescue dog, but he’s still got enough mischief beneath his collar to keep eight-year-old Kaita Takano and her animal-fostering family on their toes from morning till night. Chewed through and through, the playfully illustrated, Kaita-narrated chapter book promises plenty of canine fun.

“The focus on fostering animals rather than adopting them brings the topics of caregiving and sacrifice to light. An adorable first book in a new series for animal lovers.”  -Kirkus Reviews
