Gabby is a spunky puppy, who likes to find things. Your children will love following along, as Gabby discovers balls, socks, sticks, and even a toothbrush. One day, while she's out exploring, Gabby sees something move. The "smallish something" turns out to be Katie, a clever and inspiring caterpillar.

Your kids will share in the delight as Gabby and Katie meet, and will understand why they become "the best of friends". This unlikely friendship between a puppy and caterpillar is formed through playing, resting, and reading.

Gabby reminds us that true friends will accept you for who you are, and also who you're becoming, by accepting Katie as she goes from being a caterpillar to a butterfly.

Gabby demonstrates loyalty, care, and concern for her new friend, Katie the caterpillar, when she is missing. Children share Gabby's emotions and experiences as she searches for, and eventually finds, her lost friend.

This charming story of an unlikely friendship between two baby animals, a Golden Retriever puppy and a caterpillar, is one that your kids will cherish and ask to read again and again.
