No one can resist a story about a boy and his loyal dog, and this poignant tale of puppy love lost and found will really touch a chord in children’s hearts. Uniquely illustrated in a charming retro style, it follows Foley and his brave and devoted pup, Jem. Jem adores Foley, and Foley adores Jem right back; but even more, Foley longs to explore the stars and the planets. He knows that with Jem’s help, he can do it. But it means sending his faithful dog into space. Is Foley expecting too much of Jem, who is happy just being his best friend on earth? Children will never forget this powerful story.
