"Hey, Dog. Hey. It's me." 

What's more classic than a story of a boy and his dog? With her signature poetic style, author Tony Johnston tenderly portrays the burgeoning trust between an abused, scared little dog and the loving boy who finds him huddled in the bushes. With great patience and care - and under the watchful eye of his mother - the boy speaks softly and gently to the dog, feeds him scraps, and waits for the day when the dog leaves his hiding place to make the boy his own. Sad and sweet and triumphant, this story is sure to tug at a dog-lover's heart.
