When a small dog named Sparky meets a young friend named Mary, it's love at first sight in this bright new story from the acclaimed Flora McDonnell. It can be scary to be a new puppy in the house, but luckily for Sparky, Mary is there to show him the lay of the land. Mary is small, full of love, and a bundle of energy. She likes to dig in the sand, jump on the bed, and play tug of war. In fact, Mary is so much fun that Sparky thinks she's probably another kind of puppy!McDonnell, Flora is the author of 'Sparky', published 2004 under ISBN 9780763622084 and ISBN 0763622087.
