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?

1 review for The Abandoned Puppy and Other Tales

  1. Ruth

    This trilogy of charming puppy stories was our introduction to Holly Webb. It is easy to see why her animal stories are so popular with young animal lovers. My seven year old devoured these! She has been wanting a puppy of her own for the longest time and these beautiful, relatable tales have only intensified that desire! She was totally immersed in each story and the experiences of the characters – Zoe’s desire to help three abandoned puppies, Anna’s despair when her puppy goes missing and her determination to find him, and Bella’s pride in her scruffy mongrel pup, even when her friend makes her feel like her puppy is inferior.

    I would really recommend these as books to read together with young children at bed time, or as gentle stories for young independent readers around seven or eight years of age.
