From the author of the Purrmaids series comes a rollicking read all about a spoiled pug and her unexpected run-in with the great outdoors
Roxie the pug lives a life of luxury. She loves fizzy drinks and fluffy pillows. She keeps her treats and chew toys close and never has to lift a paw.
One night, Roxie’s humans are fast asleep when she has to GO! She scurries out of her doggy door to do her business, only to find . . . the door has locked behind her. Will Roxie be stuck outside forever? Without toys, treats, and tummy rubs?! Soon enough, Roxie finds her grit and finds her way back inside. A changed pup, she dreams sweet dreams of the adventures tomorrow might hold.
This fresh and funny picture book from Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen and Leeza Hernandez encourages readers to venture out of their comfort zone to nurture the adventurer inside us all.
"Roxie is bound to win over just about everyone once the tale starts. A frilly pink delight."Kirkus Reviews —
