Come to Minna and the Canine Club’s booth, for a chance to win prizes by entering a fun contest! You'll have the chance to create a story and illustration of the funniest thing your dog has ever done. Kids can design their story beforehand or at the event. You also can buy the book, Minna and the Canine Club, have your book autographed by the author, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Humane Society of West Michigan.
