Follow Boston`s Freedom Trail™ and witness a small revolution against a big bully. Emily is a nice, playful little dog. So why would she join forces with a big bully like Spike? Even Emily can't answer that question. It`s true that Spike makes Emily laugh, in spite of herself, and he is fun — in a way. Emily feels flattered that Spike asks her to tag along with him. But when Spike begins to tease a fluffy outsider named Cotton, Emily's feelings become confused. Just when Emily is wondering how to make things right, a bewhiskered terrier named Emerson saunters onto the scene and shows Emily how to break free of Spike. This compelling story unfolds along the Freedom Trail™, Boston's famous walking tour of historic sites from the Revolutionary era. These scenes of the colonists' struggle for independence from Britain are a perfect backdrop for Emily's struggle to free herself from Spike's tyrannical ways!
