Kids Can Press is back with two more Puppy Sam books, written by Mary Labatt and illustrated by Marisol Sarrazin. In the first book, Sam escapes the confines of his backyard in search of a friend. After attempting to make friends with various animals, Sam decides that a boy eating an ice cream cone constitutes friend material. These books are sure to be enjoyed by animal-loving children who are learning to read. mRb
