Be thankful for your furry friends in this story of a boy and his beagle!

Bobby has a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. He might soon become a big brother, his grandmother is coming for a visit, and he’s absolutely thankful for his mom’s pies, especially the pumpkin ones. But the number-one thing Bobby wants to give thanks for? His dog, Lucy. Lately, though, Lucy hasn’t been her usual frisky self. She’s quiet. She seems unhappy. Is something wrong with Lucy?

Tricks and treats-that’s what Halloween is all about. This year, Bobby has lots of both! He has a special treat planned with his beagle puppy, Lucy. And the tricks? Bobby is getting those at school with the new kid, Jack. Bobby can’t figure Jack out. And ever since Jack arrived, things have gone missing around the classroom. Halloween has never been so mysterious!
Book 4
Ilene Cooper’s fourth story of a boy and his beagle takes Bobby and Lucy into the wild playing fields of grade-school soccer.

Every kid loves soccer, right? Not Bobby. He likes to watch sports, but he doesn’t really like to play them. He’d rather play with his beagle puppy, Lucy. But when Bobby’s friend Shawn begs him to join up, Bobby finds himself stuck on a soccer team with a stern coach and several kids who have a knack for the sport. Even Lucy is better than Bobby at moving a soccer ball down the field!
Book 3
Bobby is so proud of his puppy Lucy. She’s a terrific friend, and a great dog. So when a local store has a pet contest, he happily enters Lucy in it. But it turns out the pet that wins the contest may be featured on TV—with its owner! Bobby is shy. He doesn’t like attention. But can he face the spotlight . . . for Lucy?

The third story of a boy and beagle’s friendship is perfect for young dog lovers!
Book 2
When Bobby Quinn got a beagle puppy for his eighth birthday, his whole life changed. Lucy helped him forget his shyness and make new friends.

In this sequel to Absolutely Lucy, Ilene Cooper continues the irresistible story of a boy and his beagle.

In this heart warming story of a boy and beagle’s friendship, Ilene Cooper begins the series that has charmed young readers and dog lovers alike.
