Book ~ "Sugar, Gummi and Lollipop" (2016) Ellen Miles

From Goodreads ~ Charles and Lizzie Peterson love puppies. Their family fosters these young dogs, giving them love and proper care, until they can find the perfect forever home. 

Lizzie can't wait to get to her best friend Maria's cabin for some rest and relaxation. When they arrive, the girls discover a box of three puggle puppies waiting for them. 

Lizzie loves taking care of the sweet dogs but it is a lot of hard work. Will Lizzie be able to find these cute cuddly pups a place to live?

Lizzie is in elementary school. Her family, the Petersons, have a puppy named Buddy plus they foster dogs and help them find homes.

Lizzie is going away with her friend, Maria, and Maria's parents to their isolated cabin in the woods. When they get there, they find a box of three puggle puppies, a bag of food and note from whoever left them that they hope Maria's parents can find them homes. Lizzie and Maria have fun with the puppies but taken care of the three of them, each with their own personalities, is a lot of work. 

Though this book is a quick read and directed at elementary-aged children, I found it entertaining. There is a learning experience and a puppy tip at the end. It is written in third person perspective and first person from Sugar, Gummi and Lollipop's points of view. It is the fortieth in the Puppy Place series, which currently has 66 books in the series, and works as a stand alone.
