A Puppy Called Sparkle

Quantity

The twelfth in a fantastic series of animal stories for younger readers by Waterstones Children’s Book Prize-shortlisted author Helen Peters, with beautiful black-and-white illustrations by Ellie Snowdon.

Jasmine’s dad is a farmer, and her mum is a large-animal vet, so Jasmine spends a lot of time caring for animals and keeping them out of trouble. Unfortunately, this often means she gets into hot water herself…

Jasmine falls in love at first sight with the little Golden Retriever puppy she rescues, but she knows she won’t be able to keep Sparkle forever. Jasmine soon sees that the playful, friendly puppy is quick and eager to learn, and has an incredible sense of smell. When a new girl starts at Jasmine’s school, bringing her medical assistance dog with her, Jasmine starts to wonder. Could Sparkle have a future saving people’s lives?

Brilliant storytelling that will make you laugh and cry, this is Dick King-Smith for a new generation. Perfect for readers aged seven and up.

Check out Jasmine’s other adventures: A Piglet Called Truffle, A Duckling Called Button, A Sheepdog Called Sky and many more!
