The little dog with a GIANT personality from Fenway and Hattie is starring in his own chapter book series!
The little dog with the GIANT personality from Fenway and Hattie just knows he is meant to roam freely off-leash . . . but how can he get his short human to agree?
One day on a hike, Fenway finally convinces Hattie to take off his leash so he can run free with other dogs, and as always, keep his humans safe from any squirrels. He can’t wait to tell all his friends at home that he officially doesn’t need a leash anymore!
But the next time Fenway runs free on a hike, things don’t go so well. Instead of coming back when Hattie calls, Fenway chases one more squirrel and then Hattie gets lost. Of course Fenway finds her again, but he resolves to keep that leash nearby so that she won’t wander off again.
With an easy reading level and lively illustrations, emerging readers will be eager to get their paws on the Make Way for Fenway! chapter books.
