July 2024 Debut of the Month

Perla might be small but she has a big bark and a big personality, both of which are used to good effect as she narrates this funny, lively story.

The Rico family are looking for a guard dog when they go to the dogs’ home but, she tells us, they didn’t reckon on Perla’s superpower: making everyone love her.

She fits right into the family but young Nico is her favourite. She proves a particularly good friend when he copies her other superpower – confidence and bravery expressed through a huge roar – to stand up to the bully making his life miserable.

Perla’s distinctive voice and outlook make this a particularly appealing picturebook and she is an irrepressible force of nature in Sandy Rodriguez’ illustrations too. The debut picturebook from bestselling author Isabel Allende, this shows off all her storytelling talent.
