A girl must find homes for seven rambunctious foster puppies in this sequel to The Unlikely Story of a Pig in the City, which School Library Journal called “a charming tale, ideal for fans of Jeanne Birdsall’s The Penderwicks.” Now in paperback!
Josie Shilling loves animals. When her family gets too chaotic, volunteering at the local animal clinic is the one place she truly feels like herself. But when a mysterious cardboard box appears on the front steps of the clinic with her name on it, Josie suddenly finds herself in charge of seven curious, mischievous puppies! Taking care of her pig, Hamlet, last winter was enough trouble—how is she going to handle seven energetic furballs? This summer will bring big changes for Josie as she learns about growing up, letting go, and loving your pack no matter what.
This sequel to The Unlikely Story of a Pig in the City, which the Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books said “will appeal to fans who loved Applegate’s The One and Only Ivan,” is a heartwarming blend of coming-of-age and animal friendship for readers of all ages.
