Live via Zoom. Free with RSVP through Penguin Young Readers Group

Join debut authors Rachel Wenitsky and David Sidorov for the virtual launch of their new series GOOD DOGS—they'll talk books, writing, their careers, and celebrate the release of some very good dogs.

The Secret Life of Pets meets Toy Story in a new illustrated paper-over-board middle-grade series about a group of Very Good doggie day care buddies who follow a few of their wilder instincts, leading to hilarious chaos

Meet Hugo: the loyal and lovable family dog that would do just about anything to keep his owners happy. A very Good Dog, all of the time.

Meet King: the newest puppy in town! Always full of energy and ready to make new friends, King is still learning the ropes of how to be a Good Dog.

Meet Lulu: Lights! Camera! Action! Lulu is an Instagram star with an affinity for all things fancy--make sure her fur and collar look perfect in that photo! Always a Good Dog, especially with her owner Jasmine.

When these three doggy day care pals come together for an unlikely adventure away from their owners, a small taste of being just a little bit bad starts a hilarious series of events none of them saw coming!

This new illustrated middle grade series follows a group of dogs that quickly steal your heart--and make you hope your furry friends don't get any of their own ideas!

The Secret Life of Pets meets Toy Story in a new illustrated paper-over-board middle-grade series about a group of Very Good doggie day care buddies who follow a few of their wilder instincts, leading to hilarious chaos.

“Freeman illustrates throughout in a dynamic style reminiscent of William Steig. A story of redemption and unconditional love . . . this celebration of imperfectability and consensual squirrel-chasing features a cast of sympathetic canines who find that ‘sometimes it’s nice to just be a dog.’” –Publishers Weekly

The Secret Life of Pets meets Toy Story in this new illustrated paper-over-board middle-grade series. In Book 2, wedding planning quickly goes awry when the Good Dogs try to help.

When King's owner and Good Dogs day care leader, Erin, gets engaged, all the dogs and their humans couldn't be more thrilled! But in order to make sure Erin can attend a special dog-training session and make the wedding, her fiance, Jin, promises to take care of the day care business while she's gone.

Can't be too hard, right? Wrong! When newest Good Dog and resident troublemaker, Napoleon, is up to his old tricks again, Lulu ends up with a terrible haircut and King somehow goes missing, the dogs will have to put their tails together in order to make sure the wedding isn't ruined and their humans stay happy.

This second installment in the Good Dogs series, simultaneously publishing with Book 1, highlights the importance of learning from the past, while still having a lot of fun.
