The Underdogs - We're Not The Champions
By Tracey West
The second chapter book in this fun, highly illustrated series about four dogs who learn that being yourself is much more fun than being Best in Show. From the bestselling author of Dragon Masters and the illustrator of Diary of a Pug!
Welcome to Barksdale, where all the dogs strive for perfection. Every shopkeeper claims to be the “best groomer” or sell the “best biscuits.” And at Barksdale Academy, the pressure is on for one pup to be named Best in Show.
Duke’s cousin Coco, a French bulldog from Paris, is visiting for the K-2 loyalty exam. During this exam, the Underdogs and their classmates will participate in a field day event against a rival school.
Coco is cool, funny, and charming -- especially compared to the Underdogs. So when it comes time to choose teams, it’s no surprise she ends up on Team Awesome instead of with her cousin Duke and his friends.
But during the K-2 exam, Coco can’t seem to get anything right! She trips during the six-legged race, and drops everything that’s thrown to her. If Barksdale loses the field day events, everyone -- including the Underdogs -- will fail their loyalty exam!
Can the Underdogs come to Coco’s rescue -- and save their school’s reputation?
With black-and-white illustrations on every page and hilarious antics throughout, this series is perfect for readers who are just starting to read chapter books on their own, or for anyone who loves a good underdog story!
