Description

Katie is surprised when Ruby, the new puppy next door, comes for a visit. Ruby runs right into Katie’s house and starts playing—with Katie’s favorite things! She even eats Katie’s food! Katie thinks this is terrible, and she chases Ruby away. But Sara Ann is disappointed. She wants Katie to share. She says sharing is fun. But Katie has her doubts about that!
