Dollhouse Galactic hot dogs
A little girl proudly shows off her handmade dollhouse, pointing out the wallpaper she drew on the inside, the bricks she painted on the outside, the fancy clothes she made for her dolls, and the small elevator she made out of a paper cup.  She has a lot of fun using her imagination playing with her house and is very proud of it, until she discovers her friend Sophie's "perfect" storebought house.  Sophie thinks her house is pretty perfect too, until both girls discover that the narrator's handmade dollhouse is really a lot more fun. 

Crostini's Cosmic Carnival is a monster-filled space train that travels the galaxy.  The Neon Wiener hot-dog-selling spaceship becomes part of the show when Cosmoe catches the attention of the carnival's ringmaster.  Now known as Cosmoe the Monster-Tamer, Cosmoe is a hit across the galaxy!  There's only one problem, Cosmoe and his buddies are in some serious danger and it's not only from the wild monsters Cosmoe is facing in the ring.  Can they save the day and still sell enough wieners to keep Galactic Hot Dogs in business?  This is book 2 in the Galactic Hot Dogs series.
