Read full description of the books:
When eleven-year-old Wesley loses her father in a car accident, she and her mother must move in with her Aunt Cindy, an Australian shepherd breeder in Prince Edward County, Ontario. Life on a working farm is new to Wesley and she is lonely, confused and angry at life's injustices as she struggles to fit in to this new world. After watching the birth of a litter of puppies with her cousin Cassel, Wesley pleads with her aunt to save the life of a runt puppy that would otherwise be left to die. The puppy, an undersized red merle named Piper, proves to be a challenge from the start, with a natural talent for trouble as well as herding sheep. When Piper attacks a sheep during a herding competition, Wesley must fight once again to prove the dog's worth, and ultimately, her own. Through hard work and long hours, the dog and girl become inseparable, and even stand a chance at the championship title. But on the eve of the big event, Piper and Wesley are set upon by marauding coydogs--coyotes crossed with wild dogs--and it is Piper who is called upon to save Wesley. Will the dog save the girl who gave her a second chance? Will they still have a chance at the big title?

Read information about the authorNatale Ghent has been writing stories since she was six. Her first books, written and illustrated, revolved around a family of circles: a momma circle, a papa circle and two baby circles. The momma circle wore a fur stole, distinguishing herself from the papa circle, who wore a fedora, naturally.
Natale graduated from writing about circles to writing and illustrating stories about a small fairy, and later, to stories about talking guinea pigs and eventually humans.
When Natale was very young, she wanted to be an archeologist, a ballerina, a veterinarian, a singer and a magician, but not necessarily in that order. Later in life, she realized she could be all these things and more through her writing. She says, "I never set out to be a novelist in the way that so many do these days. All I knew was that I had a voracious curiosity about life and that I loved telling stories. I simply stumbled along until writing took me by the hand and refused to let go, though I recognize now that there were many signposts guiding me along the way. I come from a long line of consummate story tellers. It just never occurred to me that I could tell stories for a living. And now I can’t imagine doing anything else."
Of NO SMALL THING she says, "The story is based on true events from my childhood. I carried it in my heart for years until it begged to be put on paper. I wrote the book for my family and for anyone, young or old, who has struggled for something they believe in. I never imagined the story would mean so much to so many children. I’m humbled by the letters and stories these children send to me."
