About this item

"Who wants to play?" wonders Little Puppy. Everyone is either too busy, too lazy, too mean, or too boring. Then Little Puppy spies Big Green Monster reading on a bench. "I will play with him!" he declares. Big Green Monster has no interest in playing games or being friends with Little Puppy. He escapes to the peace and quiet of his bathtub. But when Little Puppy follows him home and takes a scary tumble, Big Green Monster immediately comes to the rescue--and finds that there might just be a place for this tiny dog in his giant heart.With spare text and irresistible illustrations, Mike Wohnoutka tells the high-spirited story of an unlikely friendship that new readers, and their pals of all sizes, will love.
