Governor
General's Award finalist Harvey Holds His Own delivers another
satisfying story of heart, perseverance, and one incredible little dog, now in
a new paperback format.

Harvey,
the West Highland Terrier hero of Harvey Comes Home, is back with his
beloved Maggie. He is also back at Brayside retirement home, where he and
Maggie now volunteer along with their friend Austin. There Maggie is drawn to a
new resident, Mrs. Fradette, who tells stories of learning to fix cars as a
twelve-year-old during the flood of 1950. Mrs. Fradette, with her bold fashion
and love of poker, doesn't fit in among the beige cardigan- wearing, bridge-playing
ladies of Brayside, but she doesn't seem to care. Maybe that's why Maggie likes
her so much. Since seventh grade began, Maggie hasn't been fitting in well with
her friends, either.

Always
alert for anything new--and with a nose that never misses a new scent--Harvey
follows his instincts on a walk with Austin and discovers an abandoned newborn
puppy in a pile of trash. Austin's heart almost breaks over the little puppy's
plight, so he takes her to safety. Maggie and the Brayside residents and staff
praise Harvey's heroic efforts, wishing that Austin could have his own dog. But
the little puppy will need time to recover from her trauma before she can be
adopted, and then there's another, even bigger obstacle: Austin's mom, who says
no to pets.

As
fall edges toward winter, Harvey picks up an unfriendly scent in his backyard,
and he will stop at nothing to keep Maggie and the others safe. But sometimes
the little Westie is just too brave for his own good.
