"An excellent introduction to what can usually be a difficult concept for youngsters."
From the Publisher
This imaginatively illustrated story is about a boy named Joey and his ball-fetching dog Jet, who fix words pertaining to location into the malleable minds of the readers through Jet's enthusiastic efforts. Words like up, down, among, through, across, between, over, into and out are accentuated in bold type as the frolicsome dog chases the ball through the neighborhood. Author James Yang's playful and colorful pictures might vaguely remind adults of some of Picasso's semi-abstractions. In one elaborate illustration at the end of the tale, Jet retraces his steps through the little neighborhood obstacle course back to Joey. This is Yang's first book.
Joey has a dog. And a ball. And a great throwing arm. Jet has Joey. And a job to do. And do. And do. And do. They make a fine pair. If you were Joey's ball -- the one with the blue stripe -- you would keep moving among the birds through the trees on the water down the hill up the hill across the street between the tables over the roofs into a hole and out of a hole along with Jet, Joey's dog.
