“Dodger's countless fans will love the third book in the Dodger trilogy! Like the others, it is wildly funny, but suspense, also, runs high. The woods - and the Field of Dreams - may be sold to a developer! Can Dodger, Willie, and Lizzie save Dodger's home? Their efforts result in a battle of epic proportions, including a kidnapping by leprechauns! I love the book's 'green' earth-friendly theme, and the ending is perfect!”
— Christopher Rose, Andover Bookstore, Andover, MA
What would you do if your best friend was:
1. Still imaginary (and getting into trouble with other "imaginary" creatures, such as leprechauns. That's right, leprechauns!)?
2. In danger of losing his home, and the only forest in your town, the magical Field of Dreams?
3. Driving you crazy?!?! (But in a best-friend type of way . . . )
Now you have an idea of what Willie Ryan's life is like in the third and final installment of the hilarious Dodger and Me series. Only this time, Dodger's gone and peeved a band of leprechauns; Willie's sister, Amy, is missing; and class bully James Beeks's dad wants to build a housing development in the Field of Dreams. It just might take an oversize blue chimp—who may or may not be imaginary—and his two fifth-grade friends, Willie and Lizzie, to step up as environmental activists and save the woods (and still get their homework done).

“The outlandish tone should please Dodger's fans.” —Booklist on Dodger for President
“Dodger's silly sense of humor is entertaining, and the situations in which Willie finds himself will have any reader laughing out loud. Willie's awkward affection for his friend Lizzie is a sweet aside to the story. Reluctant readers will find themselves cheering on Willie and wanting to read more in the series.” —VOYA on Dodger for President
“A magical tale of affection, family, and a boy's imaginative ('imaginary' doesn't do it justice) friendship with an inspired, demented blue chimpanzee...” —Kirkus Reviews on Dodger and Me
“The humor will draw kids, including Dodger's off-the-wall dialogue and the outlandish predicaments that result when he decides to 'help.'” —Booklist on Dodger and Me
