Buster is not a small dog, but he feels like a small dog. He feels small at crowded birthday parties. He feels small when he tries to catch balls or chase wild animals. He especially feels small next to Phoebe, a bold dog who is an ace ballcatcher, popular at parties, and seemingly unafraid of anything. In these two stories Buster discovers his self-worth and self-confidence and makes friends along the way. Beginning readers will relate to Buster's fears and his successes and will relish in their very own triumph of reading on their own.

"These stories about a puppy searching for his strengths will bring smiles of recognition to the beginning-reader set." —School Library Journal
