Roxie Loves Adventure

by Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen (Author) Leeza Hernandez (Illustrator)

Reading Level: 2nd − 3rd Grade

From the author of the Purrmaids series comes a rollicking read all about a spoiled pug and her unexpected run-in with the great outdoors.

Roxie the pug lives a life of luxury. She loves fizzy drinks and fluffy pillows. She keeps her treats and chew toys close and never has to lift a paw. One night, Roxie's humans are fast asleep when she has to go! She scurries out of her doggy door to do her business, only to find . . . the door has locked behind her. Will Roxie be stuck outside forever? Without toys, treats, and tummy rubs? Soon enough, Roxie finds her grit and finds her way back inside. A changed pup, she dreams sweet dreams of the adventures tomorrow might hold.

This fresh and funny picture book from Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen and Leeza Hernandez encourages readers to venture out of their comfort zone to nurture the adventurer inside us all.
