Anna, Banana, and the Puppy Parade

Anna enters her beloved dog Banana in a contest in the fourth book of a charming illustrated chapter book series about the joys and challenges of elementary school friendships.

Anna can’t wait for the Puppy Parade. She’s certain Banana will win. Soon Banana will be famous—and that means Anna will be famous, too!

But when Sadie and Isabel suggest they all enter the parade together, Anna starts feeling a little unsure about sharing her dog—and the spotlight—with her friends.

How can Anna be Best in Show and a good best friend?
