Peg Leg Peke


PEG LEG PEKE is the tale of an adorable little Pekingese with a boo-boo. But when he uses his imagination, he’s no longer a pup with a broken leg; he’s a pirate with a peg leg on the high seas! Can he find the buried treasure? In her picture book debut, Brie Spangler celebrates the power of imagination and introduces a lovable Pekingnese puppy who refuses to let his boo-boo keep him from having fun.
