Ben and the Scaredy-Dog
Excerpt

The new kid, named Erv, came to Ben’s house the next day with her mom and her dog. The dog’s name was Max. They all sat in Ben’s backyard.

Ben liked Erv right away. Erv was short for Minerva, like Ben was short for Benjamin. She could whistle, snap her fingers, blow a double bubble, and do a perfect cartwheel.

Ben didn’t like Max. Max left dog-slobber on Ben’s hand, and he gave a big, loud bark when he spotted Ben’s cat. But at least Erv kept him on a leash.
