Synopsis

The boy in the house across the street leads a fantastic life! He can sleep as late as he wants and doesn't have to go to school if it's raining. He's got a swimming pool in his bedroom and a piranha for a pet. So the little boy who watches his every move from the smaller house across the way wants desperately to be his friend. But how is this possible? With imagination, everything is possible.

In the kind of cumulative extravagance that makes Feiffer's By the Side of the Road so startling, the speaker matter-of-factly lists his neighbor's four purebred dogs and envisions the young master splashing in a backyard pool full of dolphins.
