About this title

Synopsis:

A mother dog and her three abandoned puppies live in a rusty mixing tank from an abandoned cement truck near the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, New York. A man in a long coat lives close by in a cardboard box. The man and the dogs live parallel lives. Then one day one of the puppies becomes sick, and the man comes to her aid. This simple act sets in motion a chain reaction of goodwill.

About the Author:

Jonathan Frost lived near the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn while doing graduate work at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. This is his first book.
