Guide Dog puppy Goldie has been with the Agresta family since she was eight weeks old. Now she’s nearly fourteen months and it’s almost time for her to leave and begin her final Guide Dog training.

Abby is so proud of Goldie and is determined to make the most of the time they have left together. But when some cupcakes that Abby’s mum has made for the school charity day go missing, it looks like Goldie is the most likely culprit! Can Abby clear Goldie’s good name?

Praise for Little Paws 4: Goldie Makes the Grade

“This short chapter book punches well above its weight in terms of providing thoughtful ideas for both individual pondering and further classroom discussion. Without being at all ‘preachy,’ it opens up issues of gender and cultural stereotypes, friendships, loyalty, standing up for what you believe in, self-empowerment and doing the right thing, and, of course, information about looking after a guide dog puppy.”

Elizabeth Vercoe, Buzz Words
