P.J. le Pooch & the Magic Sketchbook
First Fictive Press Edition
A Girl & Her Dog—Let the Magic Begin!
When 11-year-old Millie McTwitter defies her mother’s strict pet prohibition and adopts P.J. le Pooch while her mother is away, something magical begins to happen in Millie’s lonely life. Millie’s drawings in her sketchbook—the last gift from her late father—start to animate on the page, and new people enter her life in unexpected ways.
Millie’s mother, vexed by her daughter’s disobedience, threatens to return P.J. to the shelter, refusing to make a final decision about keeping him until his 60-day return guarantee is up. Millie desperately tries to keep P.J. in line, but dogs will be dogs.
"Morri Mostow has written a charming book for young readers about a girl and her dog. A story about friendship and family, it is set lovingly in the beautifully rendered Eastern Townships of Quebec. Its gentle tone will delight readers of all ages." – Carol Matas, author of Who Am I?, a sci-fi thriller for middle grades, and Tucson Jo, a 2014 National Jewish Books Awards Finalist
"Lively, modern, quick paced and gently laced with French words. Also, bits of magic appear in just the right places. A charmer." – Nancy Beal, author of The Art of Teaching Art to Children
“A charming ‘girl-meets-dog-and-the-fun-begins’ story set in a delightful town in Quebec. Who wouldn't fall in love with Millie—with her compassion, friendliness, and drive to create an idyllic world in her small town?” – Elle Maxell, author of 24-Carat Murder
