One day Poppy the Pug meets Smudge the Maine Coon cat at the park, and so begins an extraordinary friendship and a series of adventures ranging from a disastrous coffee-and-play group to a terrible house fire. These eight linked stories also introduce Poppy's human companion Danielle, cheeky Jackson, Baby Gillian, the dog-hating Wenda, and the dreaded Psycho-Cat, proving that no matter what the situation, life is never dull when there's a glossy black pug in the neighbourhood!

"Young readers will be charmed by the unlikely alliance of Poppy the Pug and Mr. Smudge, the Maine Coon cat, as they test the boundaries of their integrity and courage in the cozy neighbourhood of Thompson Bay. Mason's skillful writing, paired with Berrino's delightful sketches, create a gentle tale sparkling with wit and brightness." ~ Margaret J. McMaster, author of The Complete Babysitter Out of Control!
