Volume 4: Lizzy Anne’s Pet Sitting Service

Ten dogs, five cats, and two birds—Lizzy Anne has quite a zoo to handle!

Lizzy and Missy decide to set up shop as pet sitters for the summer, helping out a whole bunch of neighbors as they go out of town. As they visit each house, they are greeted with animals (and challenges!) big and small.

The girls create a list to be as efficient as possible, but soon discover that one of the dogs, Precious, has chewed the list to pieces. Not only do the pets eat their list, they start eating the furniture as well!

How will the girls handle the chaos that these cats and canines have created? Pick up a copy online (or in person at the Gaithersburg Book Festival on May 18th) to find out!

Volume 4: Seeing Double

It's trouble (times two!) when Lizzy Anne's parents say that they have big news. The size of Mother's smile keeps multiplying, until it finally reaches the limit. Lizzy Anne is convinced that the big news is the arrival of her new bike, but it's an arrival of a whole different kind-- a new baby!

Lizzy doesn't know how to cope with another big change, especially since she's barely learned to balance life with Ollie around. She's convinced that this can only be negative, but as time passes, everything seems to normalize.

A couple months later, the surprise gets even bigger-- but what could possibly double the excitement? Pick up a copy and find out!
