From Wags to Riches, The Story of a Puppy's Journey from Beijing, China to Washington D.C
The Wheelbarrow Puppy Club is a new children's book about Varly, a street dog in Beijing, China, whose life was forever changed by an American teacher, Christina Valenti.
While the book touches on the growing global problem of homeless pets, it also carries a message of hope, love and trust. Varly, whose journey begins in a wheelbarrow, faces unfamiliar surroundings and uncertain events on her journey to America. By overcoming each challenge, she eventually ends up living in a new home with green grass, blue skies and loving parents.
About The Book
Millions of homeless, hungry, unloved dogs roam the streets of countries near and far. Street dog overpopulation is a global issue and many countries cannot, or choose not to, provide these dogs the basics of life. Wu, one of eight puppies being sold out of a street corner wheelbarrow on the chaotic streets of Beijing, China, believed that she was destined to a life on the streets. But, just as seasons change, so do circumstances. Join Wu on her journey from an impending life as a street dog, to a better life with her adoptive family.
