Chance Encounter Brings New Friend Into Young Girl’s Life in New Picture Book

Dog Ear Publishing reviews a new children’s book that stars a young girl and the dog that unexpectedly changes her life.

Huntington Beach, CA, May 28, 2019 --( Going to the park can be fun, but it’s not usually an activity that can change your life. But that’s what happened to a sweet girl named Lulu. Her adventure is at the heart of a new illustrated book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

“Lulu and Her New Best Friend” shares the story of Lulu, who goes to the park with her mom to play hide and seek. While there she finds a dog that has no collar and is wet and cold. She takes her home and cares for her. The next day, she tries to find the dog’s owner, to no avail.

Even as she continues the search, she secretly hopes the owner will not be found. Those hopes are dashed and her search leads back to the park. Can Lulu give the sweet dog back to her owner, even as her heart is breaking? Or will fate step in and lead to a solution that will make everyone happy?

The rhyming story of “Lulu and Her New Best Friend” presents a charming story about friendship and responsibility that’s just right for reading out loud. The accompanying richly textured illustrations help move the story to its sweet conclusion.

Author JoAnn M. Dickinson also wrote “I Love To Go Camping” and is working on other children’s book featuring life skills and adventure. Her two grandchildren, John and Emmie, inspire her books. The Southern California real estate broker was born and lived in Wisconsin until she moved west as a child.

Illustrator Debi Schroth has created decorative artwork in homes and businesses in California and other places in the United States, as well as created custom murals. She hikes with her dog, gardens and creates mosaic crafts.
