Little Louie Illustrated by Kathryn Finney
Louie is one special dog. His tongue likes to hang out of his mouth, and his extra-long legs make him pretty clumsy. Still, Louie dreams of being a champion dog like his brothers. Louie spends most of his time playing with his favorite toy—his ball. He can bounce it and toss it, and soon he hopes to balance on it. One day, Louie goes to cheer on his brothers at the dog show and slips on his ball into the center of the stage. But what will the crowd make of this little dog with not-so-little dreams?

Little Louie is the fictional story of a very real rescue dog that captured the heart and imagination of writer/illustrator Kathryn Finney. Through Finney’s masterful and infectiously cheerful paintings, Louie teaches kids to celebrate their strengths and to never give up their dreams. Everyone who reads this book will want to give lovable little Louie a forever home.
