Publisher Summary

Discover a treasure trove of beautifully illustrated books with our series, G+D Vintage! Featuring books from our Wonder Books line originally published in the 1940s, 50s, and 60s, there’s something for every reader in these timeless stories with classic illustrations. The Biggers’ building in the city no longer welcomes dogs, so they decide it’s time to move out–Archie, their Boston Terrier, is too important to them! They soon find out about a big, mean dog in their new neighborhood, so Mr. Biggers builds a fence. But when Archie meets the neighboring dog, they become fast friends. Sometimes dogs can teach people a lesson in getting along!
