Plot summary

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

The book is about a puppy named Ginger Pye. Jerry Pye, a little boy resident in Cranbury, Connecticut, bought a puppy he wanted from Ms.Speedy for a hard earned dollar he made while dusting the pews in the church. Jerry was pleased with the puppy and headed home. On the way home, Jerry and his sister Rachel heard footsteps behind them. When they turned back, they did not see anything. Jerry decided that if anyone was following them, then that follower was after his dog.


Later on Thanksgiving day, the dog, who the Pyes named Ginger, was missing. Jerry and his sister Rachel tried to find him, but could not. (do not read ahead "spoiler warning")


It was about ten months later when Uncle Bennie, who was only three years old, found Ginger. The Pyes also found out that the thief was Wally Bullwinkle, a child in Jerry's class.
