Forget Oliver Twist and Annie, Monty the orphan pooch will steal your heart and give you hope for an inclusive world.

Monty is a scruffy, homeless pooch with a taste for fine art, and Ginger is a poodle who doesn't mind getting her paws a bit dirty. Monty and the poodles long to live together at the warm and cozy Poodle Mansion, but its strict poodles-only policy is rather inconvenient and so these crafty canines decide to create their own home where all are welcome!

Praise For Monty and the Poodles

"beguilingly written and illustrated"
The New York Times

"Lush Matisse-inspired watercolors are definitely the stars of this book. Harnett isn’t afraid of whimsy. She delights in showing pampered dogs clustered around elegant patisserie tables snacking on cakes or sadly writing out poodle rules on a chalkboard."—Youth Services Book Review
