Tate is overjoyed when a scrawny mutt turns up in the yard one day. She even persuades Mam and Pap to let her keep Sable, named for her dark, silky fur. But before long, the dog begins to cause trouble with the neighbors and Mam and Pap decide the dog must go. But Tate doesn’t give up easily . . . and neither does Sable.

Praise for Sable

“An exceptional dog story—with a happy ending—whose length and pencil illustrations, one per chapter, make it attractive to young readers.”—School Library Journal, Starred Review

“The plot is familiar . . . Hesse, however, makes the story seem fresh.”—Publishers Weekly

“With a fresh narrative voice, thoughtfully developed characters, and its surefire Lassie Come-Home ending, a fine early chapter book.”—Kirkus Reviews
