Trixie Fights for Furry Rights by Ros Asquith


Trixie Fights for Furry Rights by Ros Asquith

Trixie is a feisty, funny ten-and-three quarters-year-old who knows exactly what she thinks and is always ready to share it! Irresistible illustrated stories from the creator of the highly successful Teenage Worrier series. Trixie's beloved doggy Harpo (yes, the infamous Doggy Yap Star) had puppies and the day has come to find them a new home, much to Trixie's despair. Nothing she says can convince her parents that they really DO need to keep all of the Very Extremely cuddly and talented furry friends. Nobody understands that Trixie is the only person who can bring up puppies, when everyone else keeps calling them Dumb Animals and outrageous things like that. Especially the local posh lady who wants to buy THE WHOLE LITTER, convincing Trixie that they have their very own Cruella de Ville situation on hand. Naturally, Trixie has a plan involving a school project, teaching the new dogs old tricks, and a Very Extremely Brilliant trap!!


Praise for Ros Asquith's Trixie titles: ...will have you laughing out loud. Girl Talk Funny, chatty and... cool. Sunday Times We love Trixie the tweenager to death! Blush
