Rosie has a super sense of smell, even by dog standards. Unfortunately, one of the best smells comes from something dogs can’t eat: the chocolate truffles her human family sells in their shop. Not one to settle, Rosie sets out to find a life that might suit her better, giving lots of occupations a whirl, but none pan out.
Then she hears about a job as a truffle hound. It turns out there’s another kind of truffle — the fungi kind, which grow wild underground — and they require a strong nose to sniff them out. Will Rosie finally find the perfect match for her unique talents? These truffles smell divine, so that sure would be a yummy solution! And it turns out Rosie's newfound talent might just be the best thing for her family. This delightful picture book, which celebrates discovering your individual talents, even includes two truffle recipes (one chocolate, one fungi) at the back.
"Despite her success, Rosie misses her family and returns home, where her trusty nose discovers a wonderful underground surprise. Guess what else Rosie’s family will now sell in their shop?... Rosie’s a cheery protagonist, and the lively illustrations nicely drive the text." — Kirkus Reviews
