Peggy the pug is left at an animal shelter, where she is then taken in by a foster family. The family’s little girl is hoping for a unicorn for the holidays – not a little dog. The new home is so wonderful, Peggy makes it her mission to make a little girl’s wish come true and find a permanent home for herself.
Bella Swift’s The Pug Who Wanted to Be a Unicorn is a very early chapter book. While I felt the book lagged at times, my seven year old enjoyed the idea of a pug attempting to be a unicorn. The antics of the little dog and the warmth felt by the family who ultimately agrees they couldn’t live without her are sweet and touching.
