Just Grace Walks the Dog

Just Grace Walks the Dog, written and illustrated by Charise Mericle Harper
Just Grace, so named by a hassled teacher who had four Graces in her classroom, is a precocious third grader with a gift: she feels empathy for those around her. In this third book about the endearing character, she describes her quest to convince her parents that she's responsible enough to get a dog. Along the way she solves a mystery, helps a neighbor save his sick dog, and makes friends with the left-out Grace L.
