February 2014 (Dial Books for Young Readers)
For anyone with a beloved pet, this delightful and heartwarming story set at the circus shows that quiet qualities like friendship, kindness, and loyalty are important and worthy.
Jane is an ordinary dog in an extraordinary circus. She isn't strong, graceful, or brave like her family. When she tries to be those things, Jane just doesn't feel like herself, but she also doesn't feel special. Is she really meant for this kind of life? Her Ringmaster thinks so, but not for the reasons Jane believes.

"A touching, delectably illustrated circus story that applauds the underdog." --Kirkus, starred review
"This is an exceptionally polished first book. Harrison's acrylic paintings, which blend realistic animal portraits with a charmingly old-fashioned circus setting to very funny effect, are the star of the show, but her understated storytelling and pacing are equally on the mark." --Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Harrison's detailed and expressive illustrations give the circus animals plenty of personality and lend an air of grandeur to their talents." --School Library Journal, starred review
