Puppies on Board

Eleven puppies born aboard a boat equals excitement and mayhem. Mollie’s dog, Sheba, is the proud mom and Mollie names all the puppies according to their personality. As the pups start exploring, chewing and getting into everything, life becomes quite hectic. Mollie hatches the brilliant idea of inviting all her friends for an afternoon tea party to observe all the cute puppies. By the end of the day, all eleven puppies have found loving homes. The large print and beautiful watercolour illustrations add to the heart-warming storyline.

Puppies on Board

When 11 puppies are born on her boat, Mollie must figure out how to find a home for each and every one. Rich illustrations add character and humour to the text.
