Perfect for fans of Ladybug Girl, this playground adventure about the joy of making new friends continues the story of the plucky girl-and-dog duo from Maggi and Milo

Maggi is an irrepressible girl with an equally awesome best friend: her dog, Milo. So when Mom suggests a day at the park with other kids, Maggi isn't sure. All she needs is Milo, afer all. But off to the playground they go—only to find that no dogs are allowed! Maggi wants to stay behind, but the other kids are having so much fun that . . . she decides to go in. Before long, she has a whole group of new friends, and all of them want to try walking Milo. But first, they have to find a family of rollie-pollies, complete a treasure hunt, and build a pirate ship. When it's time to go, Maggi waves goodbye to her new friends—but she knows she's going home with Milo, her best friend of all.

With bright, playful, Charles Schulz-style illustrations and a distinctive real-kid voice, this endearing picture book series introduces kids to a sweet girl-and-dog friendship that full of adventure.

Praise for Maggi and Milo Make New Friends

“Energetic, clever.” —Kirkus Reviews 

“Brenning’s text is spot-on [and] is ably supported by Burris’s watercolor digital artwork, which depicts great facial expressions, just enough detail, and a refreshingly multicultural group of playmates. Brenning has penned another winner. This is a charming selection with a great message to boot.”School Library Journal
