Meet Wiley, a little boy, and Jasper, Grandpa's dog. They live next door to one another, and they both pretend to be big and brave. But that's where their similarities end. The truth is that Wiley doesn't really like dogs, and he especially doesn't like Jasper. And Jasper doesn't care for kids a great deal, either. In fact, kids sort of scare him, and Wiley scares him the most. Wiley and Jasper manage to avoid one another most of the time. But one day, while celebrating Grandpa's birthday with a picnic, something happens that changes things forever... Adorably illustrated and simply written, this heartwarming picture book will charm young readers as they learn how enemies can sometimes turn into the best of friends.
