Bea Garcia: Tale of a Scaredy-Dog

Bea Garcia is an artist who draws anywhere and everywhere, but mostly in her own notebook. She especially loves to draw pictures of her dog, Sophie. When Bea’s teacher makes her visit the Garcias’ neighbor, Bert, Bea brings Sophie along for extra security. Things get bad when Bert’s terrible cat attacks and Sophie runs straight out the door. Bea searches the neighborhood, but Sophie is nowhere to be found. Will Bea’s best friend ever come home again? This book is filled with humor, imagination and doodles that capture the ups and downs of Bea’s life. This transitional chapter book series is recommended for children ages 6-9.
