Description

Award-winning author Kate McMullan tells the story of Bulldog, a lovable pup who is searching for a job, with the help of his friends.

Everyone is on their way to work in Bulldog's Big Day-everyone, that is, except Bulldog. As his friends help him find a job, Bulldog's good intentions clash with his hilarious clumsiness. He crashes a ladder through Giraffe's firehouse roof, discovers his fear of heights when he tries to wash windows with Spider, sends Moose's canvas flying when he sneezes, and tries Elephant's patience when he's caught reading the books he's supposed to shelve. In the end, Bulldog finds out that you have to love your job in order to be good at it, and he opens a bakery with his friends' support.
