Nepi and the best dog sitter ever
Nepi is a corgi, whose owner is very busy. When the owner goes to work, Nepi is taken to the neighbors. One is too lazy, just eats junk. The other is too active, Nepi is exhausted. The third one dresses Nepi up, so that he feels the other dogs are laughing at him. Finally there is Alma, the girl upstairs. Together they go to the dog park, take naps and have fun. The best dog sitter ever!
|Nepi meets Alma.|
Alma is taking Nepi to a field trip to a summer camp for schoolchildren. There they meet other kids and their dog, a Saint Bernard named Pyry. The Saint Bernard is a hero, it used to live in Lapland and it saved people from the avalanches. And he is huge. Nepi feels himself a little small. He had never saved any lives. Everyone loves Pyry. Nepi wants someone to tell that they love him, too.

Cute stories about a dog. Which could easily be identified as a child. I do not know, how children relate to these stories, but as an adult I see the great lessons in both of these books. And corgis are cute too
