Lucky and Squash are next-door neighbors and best friends. But there's a locked gate between them, so they can never play together. If only their owners fell in love and got married, Lucky and Squash would be brothers. . . . Unfortunately, Miss Violet and Mr. Bernard have never even said hello to each other.
The only solution is for Lucky and Squash to run away together, leaving a trail of clues behind them. Then, when their owners come to the rescue, surely they will notice each other and fall in love. Won't they?
National Book Award winner Jeanne Birdsall tells the humorous, heartwarming story of two friends determined to be together, complemented perfectly by Jane Dyer's exquisite watercolors.
