Pippin and Mabel

Cover of Pippin and the Bones

Kids Can Press, 2000. Illustrated by Bernice Lum.

Pippin is a yellow dog with great big ears and a curly black tail. She loves to chew on bones. Scrape! Scrunch! Crunch!

Pippin also likes to dig holes -- but Mabel is not happy when she she digs up the tomato plants. So Pippin takes her bone far away. She digs and digs ... and finds bones. Prehistoric mastodon bones!
