Zoe isn’t allowed to have a dog of her own, but fortunately the neighborhood pooches inspire an awesome idea!

It’s an age-old problem—Zoe wants a dog but can’t have one. But that doesn’t stop her from befriending all the dogs in her neighborhood—and appreciating each one’s charms and quirks. She knows which pups give high-fives, enjoy being read to, and love music. And she also knows she’s good at solving problems, so when a visit to the community garden inspires a brilliant doggy idea, it’s time to celebrate! Young animal lovers will appreciate Zoe’s predicament and love her paws-itively pup-filled solution.
