David McPhail's poignant characters express intelligence, joy, and the affectionate bond of friendship in a world that is wondrous, safe, and happy.

Boy and Bird can go up to the tree house, but Dog cannot. Boy has an idea. Using a rope and a pot, the boy is able to pull the dog up the tree to a vantage point where the three friends can observe all good things in the world--including Mom bearing a plate of cookies.

Out come the rope and pot again, and up go the cookies, to be shared by three very happy friends.
