Candy, Josie and Buddy are three canine friends whose days are filled with fun and friendship at the local park. But their happy days are threatened when two bullies named Riff and Raff drive them from their park, perhaps for good. When the three timid friends return, unable to keep themselves away from their favourite spot, the bullies are determined to do them serious harm. This book teaches a valuable lesson that every child should learn, that if good friends stand together, bullies soon find out that they’re not as tough as they thought.
