About the Book

After making a mess in a neighbor’s yard, a boy learns the value of telling the truth and gains a new friend in the process.

Wow! A boy finds some humongous boxes outside. He and his dog use them to make a train that goes far, far, far; a race car that goes fast, fast, fast; and a plane that goes up, up, up. Litter is everywhere, and the boy blames the wind. But as he watches his elderly neighbor clean up his mess, the boy knows what he must do. Truth triumphs and the boy’s honesty is rewarded with forgiveness, friendship, and cookies.
