Poppy the Pirate Dog's New Shipmate
author: Liz Kessler
illustrator: Mike Phillips
Poppy the pirate dog is lonely. Now that summer is over, Suzy and Tim have gone back to school, Mom and Dad are back at work, and there is no one around to help her bury treasure. When her family decides to get Poppy a friend to keep her company, she is thrilled. But her tiny new shipmate is not at all what she expected—or wanted! 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.
“This engaging book works equally well as a choice for independent readers or for reading aloud to younger children.” —Booklist
