Best In Show

Abby and puppiesAbout the Book

Is Gem a winner? Abso-poodley!

Abby loves the fluffy white poodles her aunt Nancy helps raise, and she's thrilled to be there when Jewel delivers her puppies. They are all adorable, but Abby thinks Gem is special. Aunt Nancy and Wendell, the trainer, agree.

Together, they begin teaching Gem everything she needs to know to become a champion show dog. Along the way, Gem helps Abby learn everything she needs to know to become a first-class handler someday.

As Gem and Wendell work their way up through the ranks, Abby learns that it takes more that good looks to be a winner. And at the biggest dog show of the year, can Abby and Gem prove that they have the hearts to be the best champions?
