The delightful "Puppa-na-wuppana Series" is modelled after a real live adorable beagle.
This sweet guy is always having new adventures and invites you to come along with him as he explores his world. His tales are spun in both picture books and chapter books that kids will love.
Praise for the books....
" Wonderful!" The students at Middletone Elementary loved hearing from the authors Cindy Koebele and Lori Weaver about the "magical" adventures of Puppa-na-wuppana. Kids can relate to the joy of getting a new puppy and students couldn't wait to talk about their experiences with their own dogs. The illustrations captured the story perfectly."
- Bay Shock, Middleton Media Specialist
"This book is so cute and amazing for little ones! I would highly recommend it for children of all ages! Teachers would love it too."
-Joseph Tran, Author

"The Beagle with the Magical Nose"
The Puppa book series has been a long time vision of mine. Living with the "real-life" Puppa has provided my family with countless hours of entertainment, joy and exasperation. I wanted to share this with the world. I asked my best friend, Lori Weaver, to collaborate with me on this project and the exciting Puppa-na-wuppana series was launched. I also own and operate a successful title insurance company in the St. Paul/Minneapolis Twin Cities metro area and providing "over the top" service to my customers is a priority to me in everything I do. I live in the cute town of Mahtomedi, Minnesota with my loving and supportive husband Jon. I have two wonderful sons, Alec and Andre, two beautiful stepdaughters, Paige and Maggie and of course a lovable Beagle with a Magical Nose.
Puppa-na-wuppana discovers he is special. He discovers that he has a unique magical nose that helps him sniff out endless possibilities but also at times gets him into trouble. He explains how he was adopted by a wonderful family who loves him dearly and he wants you to come along with him as he explores, plays and interacts with his beloved family members and his world. In doing so he hopes you will feel that you are part of his family too.

"Living the Puppa-na-Life"
This early chapter book is sure to have your child coming back to read again and again. The balance of text and amazing pictures is the perfect transition from picture to chapter book. Puppa-na-wuppana, a lucky adoptee, finds a family that will love him, take care of him, and make him part of their clan. He describes to people how he sometimes innocently gets into trouble but his forgiving family gently disciplines him and loves him unconditionally... after all he is just a sweet puppy and mistakes are made. He shares his feelings about being placed in a brand new home away from his mother and siblings and how he makes new friends and has many fun adventures to tell you about. Join Puppa-na-wuppana for lots of fun. Who knows what he will be up to next?

About the authors...
I am a self-employed title closer and share my home in Vadnais Heights, MN with three of my five wonderful children and our adorable rescue dogs, Nala, Marscaponie and Lola. Dog rescue is very near and dear to my heart and I volunteer for a wonderful local organization, SafeHands Rescue. Cindy Koebele and I have been best friends for over 15 years. She is "my person". I was honored when she asked me to collaborate with her in making her long time vision of "Puppa" into a reality. I hope everyone falls in love with Puppa as much as we have!
