Little Gabby Books

About the Books

KR Watson wrote a poem about her new puppy, Gabrielle (from Manor House Cavaliers), for an English class during her first semester at TCU. Her professor, Cynthia Shearer, loved the whimsical poem so much that she encouraged KR to publish the stories. In the series, KR is depicted as a little girl named Mel (her real-life family nickname), even though she met Gabby when she was much older. In fact, Gabby was KR’s high school graduation present. The original poem has not yet been published, but Little Gabby Meets Her New Family is available through Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and other popular book vendors.
