Yesh! Mooch, Earl, and all their endearing Mutts friends return in this fourth Mutts collection for kids!

It's been a long, cold winter--Earl and Mooch are looking forward to shmelling the flowers! Spring is the season of new beginnings. The birds are singing fresh concertos they've been working on all winter long. The caterpillars are dreaming of butterfly flight.
