About The Book

Meet the adorable and silly Peggy the pug in these first five stories in the highly illustrated middle grade series about a dog who wants to be many things, but more than anything wants to make her family happy—now together in one collectible paperback boxed set!

After Peggy the pug puppy is left at the animal shelter just before Christmas, she is taken in by a foster family. But the situation is just temporary—the family isn’t ready for a dog quite yet. And the little girl, Chloe, wants a unicorn for Christmas, not a puppy.

Peggy decides that she will become a unicorn to make Chloe’s Christmas wish come true—and hopefully make Peggy’s temporary home her forever home in the process. All she needs is a long silky mane, a glowing horn, and the ability to do magic! Easy-peasy, right? But all of Peggy’s attempts to become a unicorn go hilariously wrong. From knocking over the Christmas tree to getting lost in the snow, Peggy remains a pug. Still, her eagerness wins over the family and gives Peggy a true home.

As she settles into her new home, Peggy has more opportunities to dress up—transforming into a reindeer at Christmas, a bunny at Easter, a mermaid at the beach, and an adorable pumpkin at Halloween!

This charming middle grade paperback boxed set includes:
The Pug Who Wanted to Be a Unicorn
The Pug Who Wanted to Be a Reindeer
The Pug Who Wanted to Be a Bunny
The Pug Who Wanted to Be a Mermaid
The Pug Who Wanted to Be a Pumpkin
