problem all by himself and learns that it is okay just to be Pippin.

This story teaches young children the importance of believing in
themselves and that they each have their own wonderful gifts and

My review:

This is a cute Children's book written by Anne Kaufmann. It is about dogs. Who doesn't love dog's? I do I have 2. When the book first begins 5 of 7 Boarder Collie puppies leave the liter for new homes. Nigel and Pippin remain. This is Pippin's story. Nigel and Pippin are brothers and best friends and they are opposites. Nigel is loud and rambunctious while Pippin is meek and quiet.  Pippin wants to be just like Nigel. The main idea of the story to me is finding your hidden courage. When Nigel gets in trouble with a large ram Pippin saves the day.

This is an amazing feel good story and the kids loved it. The pictures in the book which there are a lot of them are all done in watercolor. They are adorable pictures. We all enjoyed the book and can't wait to see what adventures Pippin and Nigel get into next.


Pippin had a
wish. He wanted to be like Nigel. Nigel was brave. Nigel was strong. Nigel was
smart. Everyone admired Nigel.
