“When Maggie moves to a new upscale neighborhood, she encounters the snobbishness of the purebred dogs, who all look down on her because she is a mutt. Maggie attends a big dog show but can’t enter as a contestant because she isn’t purebred. Through her warmth and charm, she manages to win the hearts of the judges, and a blue ribbon for ‘best of all breeds.’ Afterward, all the other dogs become much friendlier. The colorful illustrations capture the feeling of the text, with attention to the expressions of the dogs and people. A touching story about what really matters in life.” — Douglas Florian, author/illustrator of Poetries

The Main Line Mutt is a delightful story with a heartwarming message. Children will enjoy the storyline and the illustrations and adults will enjoy the humor and the lesson of the story. Talented writers, Nancy and Michael Schwartz bring their love of dogs, combined with their compassion, to create an inspiring tale.” — Susie Garber, writer and literacy coach, grades 1-12

The Main Line Mutt is a wonderful story about accepting differences. Learning to be confident in oneself and kind to others are qualities that should be nurtured in this increasingly complex world. This book presents a wonderful opportunity to share just how special it is to be loved and appreciated for all one is and all that one can become.” — Liz Mennig, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction (retired)

“What a wonderful book! I love how it celebrates Maggie’s uniqueness! It’s important to remember that being different is OK and to respect oneself, as well as others. Self-confidence comes from self-love and feelings of worth and value. ” — Noriko Lovasz, B.A., M.S.M., receptionist at Great Valley Pet Hotel

The Main Line Mutt will be enjoyed by both animal lovers and those who do not have pets. The book provides an opportunity for young children to think about friendships, rejection and the effects of moving from their home. It is an excellent jumping-off point for discussion about these topics.” — Dr. Elizabeth Girshick, Licensed Psychologist
