Tommy is just about to start the 4th grade. He should be excited to be in Southern California this summer, but nooooo, his dad moved the family from Milwaukee and away from all of Tommy's friends. Tommy is bummed out, until one day when he discovers the new mystery in his life: a filthy, floppy-eared homeless dog, who has apparently just fallen from the sky!

In a classic tale of the new kid on the block, Floppy The Mystery Dog and The New Kid introduces Tommy. Tommy has come to a new town and new school far away from his friends because his Dad found new employment.

The book is well written and handles the uncertainty and fears faced by c

As the title suggests, this is a story about the new kid on the block. Moving is hard, especially when it's raining and you have nothing to do. Luckily, there's Floppy.

It's a cute story, which many children can relate to. Everyone is 'new' at least once in their life, a situation that is never easy to deal with. Through this story, kids get a feel how to make friends and overcome some of the difficulties of learning to find their place - without being preachy. Yep, the dog is cute and a perfect
