Chip loves playing with puppies every night. He wants to play with puppy toys and eat puppy treats. There’s only one problem. Chip is not a puppy—he’s a monster. Is it possible for a monster to become a puppy? Readers can find out as they follow author Phyllis Cleveland’s engaging tale of Chip, Monster in a Puppy Suit.
Chip lives with his Dad, Mom, and older sister, Addie, in the back of Miss Emma’s Pet and Grooming Shoppe. Nobody knows they live there, but Miss Emma, has inkling that someone other than the puppies and kittens was there whenever the shop is closed. Every morning when she opens shop, she has to clean a huge mess, which is left behind by Chip. Every night when Miss Emma leaves, Chip always wants to go and play with the puppies and kittens. His Dad, however, tells him he should be studying on how to be a good monster. Chip cries because he really wants to be a puppy and not a monster. Then his Mom tells him there is a way and that he had to be very careful or else he would become a real puppy.
Young readers can find out if Chip realizes his dream of becoming a puppy as they browse through the pages of this delightful read. Filled with vibrant illustrations and a charming plot, Chip, Monster in a Puppy Suit encourages the little ones to never give up on their dreams but go for them. If they try hard enough, they can come true.
