Holly, the pit bulldog, may have found herself unwanted and abandoned in the city, but readers will want to get to know her and rally for her based on this vibrant cover alone. Her paws-itively cheerful expression says nothing but play with me—and the splashy bright colors behind her only emphasize this. A shout-out to illustrator Leesh Li and book designer Karli Kruse.

Publisher’s Book Summary: After her family realizes the puppy they adopted is a pit bull, Holly finds herself abandoned in the city. To make matters worse, many people are unwilling to help her because of misconceptions about her breed. Holly’s search for love (and food) takes her through the city to a dog park, an animal shelter, and, finally, a fabulous pittie party. Against the backdrop of a culture not yet ready to accept all kinds of dogs, Holly learns that love and belonging are still possible.
