I Want a Dog!

I Want a Dog!I Want a Dog by Helga Bansch is the story of Lisa, a little girl that all she wishes for is a dog. Lisa tries really hard to convince her parents of all the fun reasons why they should have a dog but every time she hears the same excuse: the apartment is too small. Lisa, a determined little girl, is not ready to give up her wish. And she thinks of a clever way to make it happen. It's a win-win situation for everyone! You will love and appreciate Lisa's determination. A wonderful creative book just like her author. Helga Bansch was born in Leoben, Austria where she became a teacher. Helga Bansch made marionettes for puppet theaters for years. She now gives workshops for children. I would love to see more work by this rising writer. Happy Reading Time!
