Boomer's ready for his morning walk. Here's his leash. There's the door. But try as he might, he can't get anyone to pay attention to him. The humans in the house don't rush out the door after breakfast as they normally do. And, most confusing of all, strangers arrive to pack all the things in Boomer's house into boxes. There's definitely something unusual going on.
The simple text and heartwarming pictures charmingly depict Boomer's confusion, anxiety, concern, and ultimate delight on this day familiar to all -- moving day.

Constance McGeorge dedicates her time to writing children's books and painting. She lives with her husband, James, three dogs and a horse in Columbus, Ohio.
Mary Whyte is an accomplished artist best known for her watercolor paintings. She lives in South Carolina with her husband and their golden retriever.
Ages 2-7. As golden retriever Boomer awaits his customary after-breakfast walk, he comes to realize that nothing about the day is customary. Instead, confusion and chaos are everywhere. All of his household's belongings are being packed into boxes, hauled out of the house by strangers, and loaded onto a truck. Boomer himself is eventually crammed into the family van for a long and cramped ride, then finally deposited before a foreign, empty house. Elaborating on the turmoil of Boomer's day, Whyte's delightful watercolors expressively reflect the dog's emotions: there is indescribable frustration on Boomer's face when, flattened to the floor, he searches in vain under a bed for his favorite ball, and his bewilderment is evident as he gazes at the clutter surrounding the packers at work. Humorously sympathizing with the tribulations of moving, this endearing picture book will soothe the anxieties of children facing a moveespecially when Boomer quickly adapts to his new surroundings and is soon wagging his tail at new neighbors.
