Adele Griffin brings Blackberry Farm to St. Isidore!

Rakestraw Books is delighted to host author Adele Griffin when she virtually visits St. Isidore to introduce her newest book, All Pets Allowed: Blackberry Farm.

Becket Branch has one birthday wish--a dog! Dogs are outgoing and friendly, and they live life loud, just like Becket. Becket's twin, Nicholas, wants a pet more like him--a peaceful, quiet indoor cat. When their parents take them to the shelter to choose a dog and a cat, it should be Becket's biggest BEAUTIFUL ALERT ever. But Becket's dream dog, Dibs, turns out to be a super-shy scaredy-pooch. Meanwhile, Nicholas's kitty, Given, loves being the center of attention and greeting visitors to Blackberry Farm. Can Becket and Nicholas learn how to love Dibs and Given as they are--even if they aren't exactly the pets the twins dreamed of?
