Butterfly and Oscar

Butterfly and Oscar

by Tricia Oktober

When Butterfly joins a family of dachshunds, she doesn’t realise how different she looks … until she unexpectedly sees herself in a mirror. It takes Oscar, her best friend, to convince her that the other dogs love her for herself. Being different doesn't mean being an outsider or being seen as ugly.
