Maggie thinks a new puppy is the answer, but when she goes to select one on her birthday, she breaks out in hives and rashes. She's severely allergic to anything with fur!
Now Maggie is on the quest to find an animal she can keep, while also dealing with entering a new school and managing the changes a new baby brings to the family. Can Maggie outsmart her allergies and find the perfect pet? In this graphic novel, with illustrations by Michelle Mee Nutter, Megan Wagner Lloyd draws on her own experiences with allergies to tell a heartfelt story of family, friendship, and finding a place to belong.
"Maggie’s inventiveness as she overcomes these trials is showcased through Lloyd’s captivating narrative and Nutter’s bright and dynamic illustrations.
