Frank and the Bad Surprise (Frank and the Puppy) (Hardcover)
Then his people bring home a box. A box with something unexpected inside. A puppy.
A puppy who doesn't know the rules of naps. A puppy who slobbers and tackles and barks.
This won't do.
Frank will just have to find a better home. Should be easy, right?

“Cute and hilarious” — Booklist
“Lots of white space, repeated vocabulary, and humorous spot and full-page illustrations create a welcoming reading environment for youngsters. The fact that Frank’s humans are a mixed-race gay couple only boosts this book’s value.” — Booklist
“Brockenbrough’s appealing early chapter book features simple, declarative sentences with lots of repetition and cat-centered humor. Lau’s digitally manipulated, painted illustrations showing a slobbery corgi, an expressive cat, and two brown-skinned humans convey both Frank’s moods and the gentle humor.” —Kirkus Reviews
“A series opener that will delight cat AND dog fans.” —Kirkus Reviews
