Buddy does not know what is in the box that Meredith carries into the living room. But when the small, prickly creature says he is a pirate -- and that Buddy is a pirate too -- the two mismatched friends are off on a grand adventure. In this first book in the Buddy and Earl series, a dog who likes to play by the rules meets a hedgehog who knows no limits. Their friendship is tender and loyal, and their adventures are funny and imaginative. Maureen Fergus' text is witty and understated, and Carey Sookocheff's art emphasizes both the humor and the warmth of this odd and loveable animal couple. Coming in 2016 -- Buddy and Earl Go Exploring and Buddy and Earl and the Great Big Baby.
