Eddie and Dog by Alison Brown. Eddie is looking for a friend who likes adventure. When Eddie meets Dog the fun begins! The two become fast friends, and Dog sneaks into Eddie’s backpack. Later at home, when Mom discovers Dog, she says he can’t stay, because they do not have a big enough yard. Soon Dog is put in the back of the “Happy Dog” van and driven away. The next day Dog finds his way back to Eddie – driving up on a motor scooter! Mom continues to send Dog to different places with a big yard. Dog’s loyalty to Eddie is particularly compelling, as he repeatedly abandons bigger and better yards to be with his friend. Children will cheer each time he returns to Eddie, making this book a good read-aloud. Using their ingenuity, the two friends finally come up with a clever solution to the yard problem, making mom agree to let Dog stay. See this book listed in our catalog
