Gracie Lou doesn’t have many friends. She gets “picked last at recess and picked on by her older brothers.” After getting the chicken pox for what seems like a lifetime (“Or two, even!”), she finally gets better and goes outside to play. But when she gets to the edge of the woods, she finds a true miracle – a hurt, little puppy that has somehow managed to survive the cold winter snow. She wraps it in her hat and takes it to Pa, because Pa is her hero, and he can fix anything…
So begins the story of a girl and her dog. A classic pairing that speaks to the child in us all.
