Description of this Book

Monty had never met a poodle before, and Ginger had never met a stray dog before... neither could have guessed what a great friendship theirs could be! Monty is a scruffy, homeless pooch with a taste for fine art, and Ginger is a poodle who doesn't mind getting her paws a bit dirty. Monty and the poodles long to live together at the warm and cosy Poodle Mansions, but its strict poodles-only policy is rather inconvenient... and so these crafty canines decide to create their own home where all are welcome!

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Lush Matisse-inspired watercolors are definitely the stars of this book. Harnett isn't afraid of whimsy. She delights in showing pampered dogs clustered around elegant patisserie tables snacking on cakes or sadly writing out poodle rules on a chalkboard. --Youth Services Book Review
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
