Based on a true story, this is a timeless “tail” of love, friendship, and dog adoption.

Welcome to the Pom Springs Hotel! During your visit, Charlie the Pomeranian will be your furry friendly tour guide, taking you around the property. As much as this spirited pup loves his job at the hotel, he dreams of getting adopted. Will Charlie find his forever family?

His favorite part of the day is helping guests around the hotel. Whether it’s a stroll to the pool or a visit to the golf course, Charlie introduces them to his animal friends along the way. From the bunnies and turtles who live together to the swans and duckies who form one big family, the message is that there are all types of blended families, and all are characterized by love.

With stunning illustrations this book conveys a powerful message showing that a family is a family, no matter what it looks like, this book is sure to capture the heart of every young reader—and even adults too!
