PEKE, AN ADORABLE little Pekingnese, has a boo-boo. But when he uses his imagination, he’s no longer a pup with a broken leg, he’s a pirate with a peg leg on the high seas! Can he find the buried treasure? In her picture book debut, Brie Spangler celebrates the power of imagination and introduces a lovable Pekingnese puppy who refuses to let his boo-boo keep him from having fun.

Praise For Peg Leg Peke

“Large typefaces and repeated language couple with humor to make this a fine offering for the newest reader. Pair this with Antoinette Portis’s Not a Box for a look at the fun of creative play to lift anyone’s spirit, even someone with a broken paw.” — Kirkus Reviews
