$21.99

Published: Henry Holt and Co. (BYR) - May 25th, 2021

I'm a big fan of Remy Lai's books, Pie in the Sky and Fly on the Wall. Pawcasso is a sweet friendship story with ups and downs building on the idea that a little dishonesty can grow into something you didn't expect. Fans of loveable canines and graphic novels that deal with friendship and growing up will certainly enjoy this one
