Puggy is a cute little dog. He's sweet, smart, and everyone loves him. He's also very happy. He loves to play and he loves his backyard. Until one day he looks at the big black dog next door and thinks that this dog has the better yard, the richer, darker black coat, and the most beautiful bark. To Puggy, this dog is a king and his home is a castle. When Grandma tells Puggy that he has to go live next door with the big black dog for a few days while Grandma has the house painted, Puggy is thrilled. His enthusiasm is short lived. Once next door, Puggy realizes that the big black dog's home is not as green and not as clean as Puggy's. In fact, Puggy can't wait to get back to his own backyard, his own home.

Lea Kirshenberg's picture book Me Too! takes the old saying, "The grass always looks greener on the other side of the fence," and creates a loving story about a young dog who must learn this lesson for himself. Children and adults alike are prone to think that things are better next door or anywhere outside their own space. Sometimes it just takes a little visit to learn the lesson that there's no place like home. This is a colorfully illustrated children's picture book that points out the simple message that home is the best place to be ... even if the grass on the other side of the fence looks greener or more inviting.
