New Book from Margaret Finnegan
Margaret Finnegan’s New Kids and Underdogs is a fun chapter book about learning who you are and how you fit in.
Growing up can be tricky for any child, but moving to a new school can add extra stress to childhood.
This book is an entertaining read, but is also thought provoking and can help kids develop problem solving skills.
It is great for kids who have recently moved or started at a new school, but is really good for any kid who has ever felt like they didn’t fit in.
As an added bonus, there are actual dogs who are part of the story, so it’s a great book for animal loving kids.
New Kids and Underdogs
Pub Date October 25, 2022
Robyn Kellen has been the new kid six times.
She’s practically an expert on the subject and has developed foolproof rules to help her get by: Blend in, don’t go looking for trouble, and move on.
Unfortunately, Robyn’s mom has a rule, too: Robyn must do an after-school activity.
When Robyn discovers a dog agility class, she thinks she’s found the perfect thing—but then her dogs, Sundae and Fudge, are rejected from the class.
Sundae won’t do anything without Fudge, and Fudge is deaf and blind, and the instructor refuses to change the rules to fit their needs.
Luckily, the instructor’s grandson, Nestor—a legend at Robyn’s new school—offers Robyn a deal: If she helps him with math, he’ll train Sundae and Fudge.
