Pugs of the Frozen North (A Not-So-Impossible Tale) (Paperback)
Usually Available in 1-5 Days
Get ready for a ruff, ruff ride! For early chapter book readers who are ready for something longer, the Not-So-Impossible Tales are packed with humor, action, and illustrations on almost every page.
Far away, in a winter wonderland, an amazing sled race is about to begin. The winner can make one wish, and it will magically come true! Two friends, Sika and Shen, want to win more than anything. But all they have is a pack of yappy, yippy, pug puppies.
Ten pugs can’t move their sled. Even with thirty, it doesn’t budge. But what about . . . SIXTY-SIX? With a little bit of luck, anything is paws-ible.
“A madcap, magical blend of fluff and other good stuff.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
