Blue Dog lives on a small wooden farm where life is pretty quiet-except when Big Billy comes to visit. Whenever that happens, things change. Suddenly the pig is put in the hayloft, and Blue Dog might find himself in the chicken coop. But no change is as startling as the one that occurs when Big Billy picks Blue Dog way, way up and says, "I wish I had a dog just like you." It's then that Blue Dog's strange and wondrous adventures truly begin.
Jean Van Leeuwen and Marco Ventura offer this tender yet unsentimental tale sure to touch the mind and heart of any child (of any age) who has felt the magical power of a beloved toy.
