Come meet Penelope Lagos author of I Miss My Best Friend on Saturday, August 18th at 6:30pm.
 

I Miss My Best Friend

Twins Louie and Penny finally realized their dream to adopt a dog when their parents took them to the animal shelter. Cassius was not just their pet, he became their best friend. Through the years, the twins did everything with Cassius, but eventually, Cassius became old and sick. Saying goodbye to their best friend was the hardest thing Louie and Penny had ever done. I Miss My Best Friend is a heart-warming story for children that will help them learn how to deal with the loss of a pet.
