Dog wants his very own boy. Though Mama warns him that a boy takes a lot of work, Dog is determined to find the perfect boy for him. Dog's search takes him from the pooch spa to the mall to the park, but none of the boys smell quite right. Finally, in an unexpected place, a promising-looking boy appears. Will Dog be able to train him?
C'mere, Boy! is a funny and fetching twist on the traditional “boy wants dog” story.
Pictures in ink, watercolour and collage by Saskatoon artist Ashley Spires are cute and appropriate. Good for young pet lovers aged 3-7.
Jennings's total twist on the boy-meets- dog tale will please those who enjoy the wry and somewhat skewed.
Jennings has penned a tale that will instill in children the joys of growing up in a loving family.
