Publisher: Octobre Press
Pages: 32


Pansy's life blossoms when she is adopted from an animal shelter by a loving family and little girl named Avery. Swept into her new life at the Palace Hotel in Beverly Hills, this smart and courageous puppy saves the day by solving a mysterious theft. Pansy at the Palace celebrates the spirit of curiousity and exploration, and teaches us that no one is too small to make a difference in the lives of many!

My Thoughts:

Avery and her mother go to an animal shelter and decide to adopt a poodle which they named Pansy. Pansy is so happy that she is finally going to a new home. She has watched all the other dogs go to new homes but nobody wanted her, until now that is. Pansy's new home happens to be the Palace Hotel where there is a jewel thief on the loose. Pansy proves how clever she is when she sets out to discover who is behind the thefts. She is a hero and loves her new owner and her new home.

My 3 year old daughter and I read this book together and thought it was adorable. Shaelyn wants me to tell you to watch out for a naughty cat! One thing that I really liked about this book was that it reminds children that there are shelter dogs all over the world that are in need of loving homes. It also goes to show that they can be just as great as that puppy you want at the pet store.
