Meet all kinds of puppies in this sweet illustrated series perfect for newly independent readers!

Kat and her friends are eager to help when Aunt Jenn asks them to train a special puppy, 4-month-old Bernese mountain dog Piper, for her first puppy show.

They only need to work on a few simple commands, but the girls soon find out that training a puppy is not as easy as it seems . . .

Can Kat, Maya, and Grace get Piper ready for her first puppy show in time?
