Small Walt Spots Dot

Illustrated by Marc Rosenthal

Small Walt meets a stray puppy in this irresistible companion to Small Walt, which Kirkus Reviews called “charming and endearing” in a starred review.

We’re Gus and Walt.
We plow and salt.
No job’s too small.
We give our all!

Walt and his driver Gus are plowing a parking lot when the see—whoa! What’s that? A blur of fur! Pup on the loose! Can snowplow Small Walt and driver Gus save the stray and save the day?
