David Lubar (Dunk, Hidden Talents) fills a tender niche for families and educators alike. Protagonist Larry Haskins loves three things more than anything on earth-his rescued dogs, the game of baseball, and his six-year-old little brother Paul. But times are tough, odd jobs are hard to come by, and kibble isn't free. How will he feed and place his homeless canines if his luck and his savings run out?
Larry loves dogs and must find a way to feed the strays he adopts when the price of dog food rises and the price paid for scrap falls.
