Buttons tries to impress potential adopters in this third book in the QUIX series that’s perfect for fans of the Critter Club series and Animal Planet’s Amanda to the Rescue.
Buttons the kitten has always been a little shy. After a little training from Ted, the shelter manager, Buttons learns a few fun tricks and wonders if they will help him find a loving new home. On adoption day, Buttons is eager to show off his spins, high-paws, and fetching skills. But when it’s time for his big moment, he gets a little stage-fright! Can Buttons learn that just being himself, without the fancy tricks, will always be good enough?
