From the legendary Dolly Parton comes a story about her god-dog and Instagram personality, Billy the Kid, who is hoping to make it big as a country music star in Nashville, Tennessee. Now in Spanish!

De la pluma de la legendaria Dolly Parton nos llega esta historia sobre su dios-perro y personalidad de Instagram, Billy el Niño, quien anhela triunfar como estrella de la música country en Nashville, Tennessee.


French bulldog Billy the Kid was born with an ear for music. And not just any music. He loves barking to the beat of country music! So Billy sets out to Nashville to sing his heart out.

But when he meets some big bullies at the Battle of the Bow-wows, Billy worries he's barking up the wrong tree. He'll need his favorite songs ("Jowlene" and "I Will Pawlways Love You," of course), a group of scrappy new friends, and his favorite country music star to regain self-confidence and be the star he always knew he could be.

Written by Dolly Parton with Erica S. Perl and illustrated by MacKenzie Haley, this is a delightful picture book about standing up to people (and dogs) who put you down and finding the drive to achieve your dreams.

El bulldog francés Billy el Niño nació con buen oído para la música. Y no para cualquier tipo de música. ¡Le encanta ladrar al ritmo de la música country! De manera que Billy parte hacia Nashville para dedicarse a cantar con el alma.

Sin embargo, cuando conoce a unos malvados hostigadores en la Batalla de los Guau-guaus, Billy comienza a sentir que quizás la música no es lo suyo. Con la ayuda de sus canciones favoritas (“Guaulene” y “Siempre te ladraré”, por supuesto), un grupo de nuevos amigos llenos de entusiasmo y su estrella favorita de la música country, Billy recupera la confianza y se dedica a trabajar para convertirse en la estrella que siempre ha sabido que puede llegar a ser.

Este encantador álbum, escrito por Dolly Parton y Erica S. Pearl, e ilustrado por MacKenzie Haley, trata sobre la importancia de plantarse frente a las personas (y los perros) que nos menosprecian y encontrar el impulso para alcanzar nuestros sueños.
