Everybody loves an underdog, but what happens when the underdog looks scary? Find out in this action-packed, green-themed adventure, where looks can be deceiving and heroes have to work hard to get noticed!
Demo’s a good dog, but good doesn’t cut it at Junkyard Joe’s junkyard, where only bad attitudes, bad luck and bad smells prevail. Joe is fed up with Demo’s friendliness and he’s doubly irritated by the people of Newton, USA, a town of shopaholics whose trash has overtaken his yard. Joe decides to dump Demo out onto the streets of Newton and hatch a diabolical plan to turn the tables on the unsuspecting town.
Outside the yard, Demo’s rugged junkyard appearance has everyone convinced he’s a danger to their safety, and their shopping. Not until Joe unleashes his monstrous Newton Solution to Pollution Machine does Demo get the chance to show the kind of dog he truly is.
A modern fable that gently pokes fun at our throwaway society, Demo encourages readers to reconsider the things they might otherwise dismiss as disposable, while inspiring them to root for the underdog no matter what his appearance may be.
