A collection of three adorable puppy stories to treasure in one book, from best-selling author Holly Webb. The collection includes The Abandoned Puppy, The Puppy Who Was Left Behind and The Scruffy Puppy.

The Abandoned Puppy: When Zoe discovers a box of abandoned puppies, can she bring the smallest one, Cookie, back to health, and what will happen when its time for Cookie to go to a new home?

The Puppy Who Was Left Behind: Anna and her puppy Fred are staying on a canal boat and they're really excited! But when Fred runs away and the boat has to move on, will Anna find him before he gets left behind?

The Scruffy Puppy: Bella adopts a friendly mongrel puppy, but will she be able to prove that rescue dogs are just as good as pedigree dogs to her friend at school?



What more could you want than three stories about cute puppies?! My class of Year 2 children absolutely love Holly Webb's Museum Kittens series, so their excitement when I showed them this book was no surprise!

The Abandoned Puppy and Other Tales has three stories in – The Abandoned Puppy, The Puppy Who Was Left Behind and The Scruffy Puppy. All three stories feature cute animals and plenty of adventure which is perfect for children who are beginning to enjoy chunkier books. They provide the perfect storyline to hook young readers into reading more and more!

As it has three stories in, it would make a fantastic reading challenge for the holidays for children who are just beginning to enjoy chapter books and build their reading stamina. Each story has eight chapters and they have some lovely illustrations to keep the reader interested.
