How Riley Rescued the Huffy Woofer

Teaches children the value of truthfulness versus the value of friendship and loyalty

How Riley Rescued the Huffy Woofer is the story of six-year-old Riley, who is not yet able to ride a bike or read, and often feels left out when his older brother William and his friends are playing together. One day, the older children leave him behind, and Riley becomes lost in the woods. While looking for a way back home, he stumbles upon an unexpected secret. His friends Sam and Pam, twin girls who live next door, are hiding a pregnant bulldog that they recently found. Because they want one of the puppies, they swear Riley to secrecy, but Riley knows he has to tell someone because the bulldog mother will need help to have her litter safely. Riley is faced with a difficult dilemma—telling the truth to his parents would mean breaking a promise to his friends.

Riley ultimately relies on his faith in God to do the right thing, and it is hoped that his story will provide parents and children with the opportunity to talk about the issues of truthfulness, peer pressure, and friendship.
