For anyone who loves a dog--and anyone who loves a laugh, comes this sensitive (and silly!) story about growing up and mending fences. An enduring message of friends, community, and the joy of pets.

Ask anyone who has a dog and they’ll tell you that their dog is the best. Really, truly, the best dog in the world. Theirs is the best dog that ever lived, ever, ever, in the history of the known universe.

Welcome to the dog park!  It’s a playground for dogs in the big city. Here, four sixth graders (and their dogs!) overlap on one hilarious and important June weekend. 

    Ezra needs to find his lost dog.

    Cup-Cup needs a friend. (She also needs to learn to walk on a leash.)

    Mei-Alice wonders if anyone will ever understand her.

    Panda wonders what will happen if she breaks the rules.

    Kaleb is covering up a terrible mistake.

    Grover and Lottie are making lots of terrible mistakes. (Some of them are disgusting.)

    And Jilly needs to make a new life in a new place. 

    On this almost-summer weekend, a series of surprises, mishaps, and misunderstandings will end up changing all of their lives.
