Mom brought home a new book for us to read the other day called The Ugly Pugling by Wilson the Pug (and his mom, Nancy Levine).
The book reminded me a lot of, well, me! We both have squished little faces and we both write real good (with the help of our moms...of course!)
So the book is all about Wilson the Pug finding the love of his life at the park one day...but then she disappears. He visits her house...but she doesn't come out. After a long time, she finally opens the front door and guess what?
She's a MASTIFF! Do you know how BIG Mastiffs are?
(Here's a little lesson, pugs weigh between 10-20 pounds. Mastiffs can weigh between 130-180 pounds! THAT'S A HUGE Difference!)
The book talks about their love for each other...but Hedy (the girl) is supposed to win the top prize at the Mastiff show...which means she'd be wed to Shakespear, another Mastiff! (But, here's the thing, Hedy doesn't like Shakespear- her identical sister loves Shakespear!)
In a book that will keep you on the very edge of your doggy bed...I HIGHLY recommend The Ugly Pugling.
