Peggy and Me

PEGGY AND ME

By Miranda Hart

If you are a lover of Miranda’s goofy persona and all things canine, then this is the book for you.

The usual comical and cringe worthy moments that we love from Miranda.

More like a walk in the park with a friend, this real life account is truly hilarious packed full of the usual comical and cringe worthy moments that we love from Miranda. Miranda’s journey with Peggy (her Shih Tzu Bichon Frise cross puppy) begins during a particularly low point in her life, and the pair’s bond helps her through with plenty of deep belly laughs and touching moments of loyalty and friendship along the way.
