From the writer of the bestselling Dragon
Masters series and the illustrator of the bestselling Diary of
a Pug series comes a high-energy, illustrated chapter book series
about four dogs who learn that being yourself is much more fun
than being Best in Show.

Welcome to the town of Barksdale, where the canine residents
strive for perfection. Every shopkeeper claims to be the "best
groomer" or sell the "best biscuits." And at Barksdale Academy,
the pressure is on every year for one pup to be named Best in

Nova, Duke, Harley, and Peanut have never won Best in Show... which
is okay with them! But they have to work together to pass their
Agility Exam, because either the whole pack passes or the whole
pack fails.

Nova has convinced her pals to train, but on her practice course,
Duke is afraid to climb the high ramp, Harley keeps chasing squirrels,
and Peanut can't make it through the hoops. Nova's not doing
much bettershe's so excited she keeps knocking the whole course

Will the pups make the grade, or are they doomed to be Underdogs
With black-and-white illustrations on every page
The dogs hilarious antics will have kids laughing throughout

This series is perfect for readers who are just starting to read
chapter books on their own, or for anyone who loves a good underdog
