When Bonnie's dad gets a new job and they have to move to the other side of London just before Christmas, Bonnie is devastated. She must leave all her friends behind and she worries that Christmas in an unfamiliar place with just her parents for company is going to feel very strange. To bring her some festive cheer, Mum and Dad take her to Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, where she meets Belle, the gorgeous Dalmatian puppy. With her big eyes that twinkle brighter than the lights on a Christmas tree, Bonnie knows she's the perfect dog for her! She meets a girl in reception who has just picked a tiny white kitten called Sparkle - and discovers that they live next door to each other. A puppy and a new best friend - have all her Christmas wishes come true?
The latest title in this perfectly pitched and packaged series for young readers - resistance is futile!
Battersea Dogs & Cats Home is a charity that aims never to turn away a dog or cat in need of our help. We reunite lost dogs and cats with their owners; when we can't do this, we care for them until new homes can be found for them; and we educate the public about responsible pet ownership. Every year the Home takes in around 12,000 dogs and cats. In addition to the site in south-west London, the Home also has two other centres based at Old Windsor, Berkshire, and Brands Hatch, Kent.
