From the Publisher:
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.

Annotation:
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.
