Pippi Rocks, More Stores from the Dog Blog

 Pippi Rocks, More Stories from the Dog Blog, is a charming tale of a curious, exceedingly clever Young Dog’s exploits. The antics of Pippi, a black Labrador Retriever, are non-stop in these tales of her mischievous adventures by Katherine (Gig) Babson.

The book is a warm and inspiring affirmation of how a dog’s and its owner’s reciprocal love brings deep and unique meaning to their lives.

Katherine Macdonald’s illustrations playfully capture Pippi’s capers with her bright and animated watercolors.
