Series and first book synopsis:

The Adventures of Lucy and Luke: Meet Lucy and Luke, two sweet little pups who are the best of friends … most of the time. They are always on the lookout for fun. They find excitement and adventure everywhere, and their quest for adventure sometimes gets them into trouble. Along with their best friend Angel, Luke and Lucy go on daily adventures around the house, in the side yard, and when they go on walks around their neighborhood.

In book one, Bully Trouble at the Puppy Park, Luke and Lucy meet their friends Kayla and Poppy to go to the neighborhood puppy park. As they enjoy themselves and have a lot of fun, little Lucy runs into the mean Bully Gang. Things get tricky when Lucy is cornered and bullied by the group. The book explores how to deal with bullying from a “puppy perspective.” This book aims to teach children strategies to deal with challenging bully situations. Stand up for what is right … even if you stand alone!
