Red and Rover is about every boy who loves a dog, and every dog who loves a boy.

First there was Bogey and Bacall, then Butch and Sundance. Now Red and Rover have taken center stage as the most captivating twosome around. Ten-year-old Red and his faithful canine companion, Rover, forged their fellowship in a gentler time, when friends were forever and loyalty was unquestioned. Red and Rover have an endearing partnership that brings them - and the strip's lucky readers - a measure of pure delight.

Created by Brian Basset (whose Adam@Home strip has been syndicated since 1984) Red and Rover appeals to countless fans who appreciate its focus on friendship. Red's 17-year-old brother, Martin, plays the foil, while Red's parents, Carol and Charlie, attempt to keep everything running smoothly. It's an ideal cast of characters. This Red and Rover book wraps up this extraordinary friendship between boy and dog in an ideal package for everyone who appreciates the sweetness of a simpler time.
