Helper Hounds: Sparky Helps Mary Make New Friends

by Caryn Rivadeneira

Mary’s new in town. She’s worried about starting classes at her new school. That’s why her mom calls the Helper Hounds—and why Sparkplug, the wildly handsome, wickedly smart, world-famous Helper Hound is on the scene. Sparky knows a thing or two about moving. He moved four times as a puppy. Sparky knows he can teach Mary all his best tricks and help her meet new friends. But will they be enough to win over Custard, Mary’s persnickety cat, and show Mary making friends is nothing to fear?
