Book Description

Pansy's life blossoms when she is adopted from an animal shelter by a loving family and little girl named Avery. Swept into her new life at the Palace Hotel in Beverly Hills, this smart and courageous puppy saves the day by solving a mysterious theft. Pansy at the Palace celebrates the spirit of curiousity and exploration, and teaches us that no one is too small to make a difference in the lives of many!

My Review

A sweet dog named Pansy lived at an animal shelter and eagerly awaited for someone to come and adopt her. Her special day finally arrived when a young girl named Avery, fell in love with Pansy and adopted her. Pansy’s new home was a luxurious hotel in Beverly Hills. One day, everyone was startled when they realized someone at the hotel was stealing jewelry from some of the guests! Pansy began following clues to help solve the mystery.

Pansy at the Palace is a lovely story about a lonely poodle that is desperate for a family to love her. Pansy quickly goes from being an average dog to an adored and special pet. I enjoyed reading about her new life at the hotel and how she helped the hotel employees solve the mysterious burglary case. The illustrations are colorful, detailed, and wonderfully contribute to the story of Pansy at the Palace.

My eight-year-old daughter, Bella, also read Pansy at the Palace and wanted to share her thoughts: I like when Pansy got adopted and helped solve a mystery because everybody gathered around to celebrate and call her a hero.
