Illustrated by Heather Ross
Kate and Lucie are best friends, who love, love, love dogs, but live in apartment buildings where the rule is: NO DOGS ALLOWED. But thanks to their magic dog bone necklaces, instead of having dogs, they get to be dogs!
In this first book of the Ready, Set, Dogs! series, Kate and Lucie—with some surprising help from Danny and DJ—help rescue neighborhood strays and raise money for their local animal shelter.
“This fun, quick read will have young dog lovers sitting up and begging for the next book in the series.”
—School Library Journal
“Frequent collaborators Calmenson and Cole begin the Ready Set, Dogs! series with a peppy story that takes the notion of dog-loving kids to the extreme. … Good-natured banter and silliness move the story along at a brisk pace.”
