In Corky Tails: Tales of a Tailless Dog Named Sagebrush by Joni Franks, the main character is Sagebrush, a Corgi dog. Sagebrush lives on a ranch. She stays in the house with her parents but the rest of the dogs are with the animals outside. Throughout the book, Sagebrush is called Corky by the other animals. The other dogs tease her because she has no tail. They call her useless. The couple who own the ranch puts the place up for sale. A young woman buys the ranch, but the couple doubts she can handle a ranch on her own. She fell in love with Sagebrush and started to train Sagebrush on how to herd animals just like the outside dogs with tails do. She taught Sagebrush and proved that a female could run a ranch. She also proved that Sagebrush did not need a tail to help run a ranch.

This book has wonderful illustrations to complement the text. The text runs smoothly with many descriptions, making one feel for the main character, Sagebrush, getting teased and being made fun of. The point of the book is very nice. Whatever good things you want to accomplish in life, you can set your mind to it and do it. This book ought to be read to kids from the get-go so they learn not to tease or bully another child. Again, yet another book that could stop a kid from bullying. I recommend this book to all pre-school and elementary schools.
