For years, Maya has dreamed of one thing: a puppy of her own.
Now, on her sixth birthday, Maya’s mom and dad announce that they are going to the animal shelter – where Maya can finally pick out the puppy she’s always wanted.
But when Mrs. Warner, the director of the animal shelter, brings in the first contender, Maya is disappointed. This isn’t a puppy at all. Instead, Adie is a quiet, sweet older dog. How can Maya choose between Adie and the squirming, whirling puppies all around her?
Author Jen Blood tells a heartwarming story for animal lovers of all ages, complemented by the gentle illustrations of noted Maine artist Thomas Block in one of his final works. Printed with pride by Lincoln County Publishing Company in lovely midcoast Maine.
