About the Book

Miguel is a friendly, energetic, and mischievous seven-year-old who lives in the Village of the Rainbow Tree. He has always wanted a dog. Unfortunately, his mother thinks he is too young to care for a pet.


After Miguel seeks advice from an old woman in the village, she tells him it is a lot of work to feed and love a dog. After the old woman talks to his mother and receives her approval, she takes Miguel to the back of her cottage to see something. As he excitedly follows her, Miguel has no idea that just past her beautiful garden is a place where special animals live, and that there is one there just for him.


Miguel and Fido: A Rainbow Tree Story shares the fun tale of a boy’s adventure as he adopts a special pet and learns responsibility.
