Meet Lucy, a little puppy full of bounce and curiosity. Lucy loves taking walks; it’s especially fun to greet the neighborhood children and play with other dogs. Whether it’s to race down a snowy hill in February or frolic in the grass in May, Lucy never says no to a stroll outdoors. Come December, Lucy’s enjoyed every season, and she’s almost all grown up!

In lyrical language and through endearing illustrations, Ashley Wolff traces the growth of one adorable puppy over the course of an adventure filled year.

Praise for When Lucy Goes Out Walking

“Softly colored double-page illustrations (some with smaller scenes inserted) feature an idyllic small town custom-made for the adventures of a boy and his dog. The breezy text for each month is in the form of modified limericks and perfectly suits the gentle activities.”—Booklist

“A dog-lover’s look at the changing seasons.”­—Kirkus Reviews

“Wolff celebrates the curiosity and playfulness of a black-and-white puppy with a poem for each month of the year.”—School Library Journal
