Will Zelda defeat Vacuum once and for all? 

For ages 7 and up, read 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 daughter is 10 years old and she just finished this book and absolutely loved it! She said it is her new favorite book and can't wait to read the next one."
