Dex, the Heart of a Hero

Dex, the Heart of a Hero

By Caralyn Buehner
Illustrated by Mark Buehner


Dexter is a little dog. So little, in fact, that the neighborhood cats are bigger than he is. But being little doesn’t stop Dex from have big dreams – he wants to be a superhero. After a lot of study and hard work, Dex finds out that even if you are very little, you really can be a hero.
