The Adventures of Zelda

For ages 7 and up, start with The Adventures of Zelda: A Pug Tale, the first of five in a laugh-out-loud chapter book series about a pug who has an appetite for adventure.

Take the word of these parents:  

"It is difficult for me to find books that my daughter enjoys. She isn't much of a reader because not many books hold her interest. She loves pugs, though, so I purchased this book for her, hoping it would keep her interest. She loved it!"

"It is a very readable story about a dog - great for struggling readers."

"My 10 year old pug obsessed boy, loves this whole series! It should be noted, he generally doesn't like to read chapter books, but he is in love with the antics of Zelda!"
