New York Times bestselling powerhouse team presents a doggie, a bone, and tons of determination that remind us that going for what you want brings ginormous surprises.

Sniff! Sniff-sniff!
I smell a bone. A bone that's BIG.
I'll get it out, I'll dig and dig.

A big, BIG bone! I know it's there!
It will take work, but I don't care!

Tiny may be a small dog, but don't let that fool you. He's a pooch with power who knows what he wants. And he's going for it. But oh, those pesky pessimists — they're trying to rain on Tiny's dig-parade!

Thank goodness for one special boy who believes in Tiny, because in the end, this dog's grit proves that he's the little pup who could. . . dig up some giant surprises!
