THE PET WASHER SERIES
THE PET WASHER
What happens when a vacationing princess befriends the local pet washer?
Meet the pet washer! Fourteen-year-old Cianna works overtime at The Royal Pet Palace and Day Spa. Here, animals are cleaned, massaged, bedazzled, and dyed to match the outfits of their masters. Cianna is blind and can detect hundreds of odors both fair and foul. This makes her popular with the royal families because she invents medicinal shampoos, flea treatments, pet foods, and toothpastes to keep their pets as healthy as they are clean.
Meet the princess! Twelve-year-old Polly owns the finest dresses, the fastest horses, lives in the largest castle, and has the prettiest friends in the seven kingdoms. When one of the dancers in her Spring Festival performance becomes ill, Polly befriends Cianna to take her place. Thrown into a world where appearances matter, blind Cianna can't see what all the fuss is about. As the princess and the pet washer prepare for the Spring Festival, their choices lead to triumph for one girl and disaster for the other.
