Buster isn't like Phoebe, the other dog in his family. Phoebe can catch balls, and Buster cannot. Phoebe is bold, and Buster is shy. Buster doesn't know it, but he has a talent that Phoebe doesn't have. Read about Buster's triumphs in this story about a shy dog who discovers his strengths. Expressive illustrations on every page capture Buster's personality. This is a great read for dog lovers as well as anyone who has ever felt like the 'odd dog out.'(Reading Level: 3.3)
