About this item

FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. There's a new pet on the way--themoment every kid dreams of! It's the night before the adoption of a puppy and the whole family can hardly wait. Everyone helps prepare: they buy treats, set up a crate, and discuss what they should name the pet. When they get to the shelter, they see all kinds of dogs -- until they spot the perfect one for them. But a last-minute surprise makes things twice as exciting!

About the Author

Natasha Wing

Natasha Wing was born in Connecticut and now lives in Colorado. After graduating from Arizona State University, she worked in advertising for a number of years. It wasn't until 1991 that she decided to write children's books. Luckily she sold her first book within six months and has been writing children's books and articles ever since. Some of her books have even ended up on bestseller lists, including the wildly popular The Night Before series."I'm curious about many things - people, holidays, underdogs, little known historic figures - and translate my excitement for a topic into books for kids to enjoy. Story ideas are popping into my head all the time, so you never know what my next book will be. But that's what's so fun about writing."
