Life is just one big laugh after another for twelve-year-old Benjamin Davies. Little League baseball, endless schemes and pranks, and general mischief take up most of his existence. But one middle-of-the-night phone call changes everything. With the walls tumbling down around him, Benny befriends a mutt at the county animal shelter, only to learn that the dog is scheduled to be euthanized. Recruiting his seven-year-old brother, Frank, and his next-door neighbor, thirteen-year-old Tara, Benny hatches a plot to spring the do,g and in the process sets off a series of events that ensures that the town of Glidden will never be quite the same again. As the story unfolds, it becomes less and less clear as to who rescued whom.

Jimmy Ball grew up in DeKalb, Illinois, home to Northern Illinois University and endless corn fields. He enjoyed a thirty-six-year career with the United States Postal Service before retiring in 2007. Married for thirty-five years, he and his wife, Barb, are empty nesters with two daughters off and married on their own. In addition to writing, retirement includes part-time work at the University bookstore, reffing high school football and basketball, walking his dog, Digger (a rescued dog following Hurricane Katrina), and spoiling his grandson. A long-suffering Chicago Cubs fan, he optimistically awaits “next year.”
