'Man's best friend. Always there. In good times and bad times ... Ruff!' Yup! Babymouse is dreaming of a pup ... who comes to her aid when she's drowning. 'Blink!' Babymouse comes back to the real world at the breakfast table, as Mom makes plans to bring her to the pet store to get a new fish. Fish! Babymouse hasn't had good fortune with fishy pets (she's had fish named Goldy in numbers 1 through 5), nor with other pets for that matter.

Babymouse dreams of a cat, or perhaps a pig like Wilbur in the story of Charlotte's Web. A visit after school to the Purrfect Pets shop, and her eyes turn into heart-shapes as she spies the puppies, and thinks of Charlie Brown's dog Snoopy, and Mickey Mouse with Pluto. But first Mom suggests Babymouse try out a pet hamster, then a turtle, then a ferret - and on and on.

Jennifer Holm and Matthew Holm, creators of the Babymouse series, again win young hearts with their heroine's role in Puppy Love. A splendid adventure - of attraction to a pup, ownership, caring for it, and walking it (so to speak) - awaits youngsters in Babymouse #8 - a doggone good canine caper!
