Dolly Parton's Billy the Kid makes it big / text by Dolly Parton with Erica S. Perl ; lyrics by Dolly Parton ; art by MacKenzie Haley.

Parton, Dolly, (author.). Perl, Erica S., (author.). Haley, MacKenzie, (illustrator.).


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. -- Provided by publisher.
