When Lucy is adopted from the local animal shelter, her new family thinks that they have chosen a perfect pet. And she is, right up to the minute she starts to howl, and howl, and howl some more. Treats, tricks, a soft red bed, lullabies, and even doggy therapy cannot stop her "Wah-ooo-ooo-roo!" It is the little girl figures out that Lucy needs a comfy friend (her own stuffed animal) and Lucy who figures out that she needs as many as she can get her paws on. And then, all is well.
Harriet Ziefert's debut title was A New Coat for Anna, published by Knopf. Since that time she has authored well over 200 children's books and became the visionary founder of Blue Apple Books. The author lives in South Orange, NJ.
