Norbert: What Can Little Me Do? is an internationally award-winning children’s picture book inspired by a real 3-pound registered therapy dog. The story shows that you don't need to be big to make a BIG difference in the world.


Norbert, a Pet Partners® dog, tells the tale through his personal artist’s journal. "You are holding my Artist's Journal about my move to the BIG city. I had no idea what a little 3-pound dog like me could do in such a huge place. I was surprised to discover the answer, and I bet you will be, too!" writes Norbert on the book's dust jacket.

As the first title by Polly Parker Press, this lovable, exquisitely illustrated tale shows how a tiny hero discovers his unique gift for helping others while showing children that each person has his or her own unique gifts. This is the first book in a series. Norbert: What Can Little YOU Do? is the second book in the series and was published in March 2015.
