A new baby brings changes to any household and can trigger a little sibling rivalry – but what about when that “sibling” is a dog? This second installment of the Charlie Girl series follows the poodle Charlie when she finds out that she’s about to get a new sibling. Even though her mom assures her it will be fine, Charlie isn’t sure what to expect.
When baby Ava comes home, it’s a rough transition for Charlie, but as Ava gets older, the two form a close bond. Frogel’s book is filled with beautiful ink and watercolor illustrations that bring Charlie to life. From every book, a donation will be given to the ASPCA to help prevent cruelty to animals.
Available October 14 at various retailers and Amazon. ($24.95, Penny Black Publishing). An interactive e-book also will be released, along with a special limited edition version available only at Bergdorf Goodman, one of Charlie’s favorite places. charliegirlnyc.com
