Marcy Series Number 2/ Book 14

Themes: Easy-to-read/ Grandmothers/ Self confidence/ Series

Armed with a clipboard of essential tips for new dog owners, Marcy and her friend Bella walk the neighbourhood trying to match suitable homes with lost dogs from the local ‘pound’.  Easily read, funny and with a strong message of good pet ownership, this is just one new title in a very full series that I have only just come across.  For teachers wanting to get younger children ‘hooked’ into an attractive series I think these books would be well worth considering. There is a companion series Toocool with a male main ‘lead’ although Marcy and Bella also appear in them.    
Year 2- 3/ Ages 6-7
