In the classic style of The Giving Tree comes a touching debut picture book about the unfaltering love between a boy and his pet.

One day a boy finds a dog. He takes him home, already dreaming of the adventures they will have and the games they will play.

But when the boy gets hurt, he and his new best friend are separated. Will the boy be able to grow up quickly enough to get his furry companion back, or will life keep getting in the way?

With dreamily spare text and sweeping yet simple illustrations, Hey, Boy is a reminder that true friends always find their way home to each other.

"You're not ready to take care of a dog," his mom said. "Maybe when you're a grown up."

"Don't worry, Boy. I have a plan. I'm going to grow up faster than anybody!" said the boy.

"You wont be at the shelter long."

A heartfelt story about the special relationship between a boy and his dog that continues to grow over the years, despite the dog moving into a new home and getting new owners. A tale of patience, dreams, family, and unconditional love.
