Poppy the Pirate Dog's New Shipmate
author: Liz Kessler
illustrator: Mike Phillips
Poppy is lonely. Now that summer is over, Suzy and Tim have gone back to school and Mom and Dad are back at work. What’s a pirate dog to do when there’s no one around to help her bury treasure? When her family decides to get her a friend to keep her company, Poppy is thrilled. But when she meets her new shipmate, he is not at all what she expected — or wanted! Will mutiny ensue? In her second full-color early reader, best-selling author Liz Kessler steers a course through the sometimes tumultuous waters of sibling rivalry through the eyes of a very funny and slightly neurotic pup.
Poppy, the irresistible scalawag, navigates uncharted waters when she’s called on to share her treasure with a tiny new shipmate.
