Description


From critically acclaimed author-illustrator Joowon Oh comes a poignant picture book about the special bonds between a girl and her foster dogs, with heartwarming messages of compassion, selflessness, and finding a home—in each other.

One day, Ruth and her mom are in the park and see a pet adoption fair. Ruth is drawn to a cute little dog, but they are moving soon and can’t adopt. However, they can foster for a couple of months, and that’s how they wind up with Ginger. Then Daisy. Then Cody, a special-needs dog with injured hind legs. Can Ruth help Cody find his forever home?

Lucky Dogs is a vibrant and charming story about three adorable dogs down on their luck and a girl with a big heart who wants to save them. Each hello is a delight as these furry friends teach our young heroine how to overcome her worries and be joyful, curious, and brave.
