Josh wants to be a child’s best friend, and he’s bringing along some of his pals to help.

First, there’s Jessica. Josh fell in love with this young lady when the family took him in as a puppy. She’s his number one best friend. Smudge is his best dog buddy. Smudge tries to keep Josh out of trouble, but she’s rarely successful. Then, there’s Dr. Rick, Josh’s own special doctor. At first, Josh doesn’t know what to think about this guy who’s pinching and poking him. Very quickly however, Dr. Rick earns a place in a very close circle of friends.

Josh has other animal friends, too. Each faces a different challenge common in both the animal world and childhood. Josh will introduce these friends later in a new series of Josh adventure books.

"I could hear other dogs nearby. There was a poodle that barked in French. There was a basset hound that sounded like a fog horn. And a chihuahua with a Mexican accent!"
