"An Undeniably Fun, Tail Wagging Romp. A Must Read." --Booklife Prize
Gracie, a snobby royal Russian Wolfhound (Borzoi) show dog, expects her noble puppies to follow in her pawprints of being a pampered princess. Daughter Carnegie has inherited Gracie’s aristocratic attitude and assumes she’ll be pick of the litter. When the coveted title goes to her humble but perfect sister, Madison, she’s resentful and scoffs at being a silly show dog.
Carnegie sets her sights on becoming a famous “woof hunter” and living as royalty in the Imperial Palace. The only tiny problem is how to get from her home in New York, all the way to Russia on her own.
Madison is torn by loyalty to her owner, Garnett—who expects her to carry on their kennel’s legacy of Grand Champion show dogs—to Anastasia, the young girl who holds her heart—and to her scheming sister, Carnegie, who needs her to carry out her royalty-obsessed plans.
Will fame and royalty—or love and loyalty win out? Middle grade children and dog lovers of all ages will be captivated by this funny, fanciful, and heartwarming adventure.
The character illustrations (including Carnegie on the book cover) are by Chanel "Dezzoi" Scott. DreamWorks Animation and Disney voice talent, Stephen Kearin, brilliantly narrates and performs all 36 characters in this novel’s extraordinary audiobook.
