“Dodger's countless fans will love the third book in the Dodger trilogy! Like the others, it is wildly funny, but suspense, also, runs high. The woods - and the Field of Dreams - may be sold to a developer! Can Dodger, Willie, and Lizzie save Dodger's home? Their efforts result in a battle of epic proportions, including a kidnapping by leprechauns! I love the book's 'green' earth-friendly theme, and the ending is perfect!”

Description

What would you do if your best friend was:

1. Still imaginary (and getting into trouble with other "imaginary" creatures, such as leprechauns. That's right, leprechauns )?

2. In danger of losing his home, and the only forest in your town, the magical Field of Dreams?

3. Driving you crazy? ? (But in a best-friend type of way . . . )

Now you have an idea of what Willie Ryan's life is like in the third and final installment of the hilarious Dodger and Me series. Only this time, Dodger's gone and peeved a band of leprechauns; Willie's sister, Amy, is missing; and class bully James Beeks's dad wants to build a housing development in the Field of Dreams. It just might take an oversize blue chimp who may or may not be imaginary and his two fifth-grade friends, Willie and Lizzie, to step up as environmental activists and save the woods (and still get their homework done).

Praise For Dodger for Sale

"In addition to plenty of humor, this fantasy offers realistic relationships and an environmental message. Give it to old fans and be prepared to help newcomers locate the first two books in the series.” --

School Library Journal

Praise for DODGER AND ME:

"The humor will draw kids including Dodger’s off-the-wall dialogue and the outlandish predicaments that result when he decides to 'help.' The story grows increasingly engaging as Willie starts moving toward what he really wants."—Booklist

 "It is roll on the floor funny with several nice messages tucked in for good measure."—Brenda Kahn, Librarian, Haworth Public School (NJ)
