Description

He had always wanted one ever since he was little… He might not be the one he would have picked himself. He has some strange habits, eats weird food and disappears for hours of the day. But he is perfect really, in his own way.

This is the classic story of a boy and his best friend but with a twist! Told from the perspective of the dog, this book is a hilarious, touching and fresh take on the relationship between a boy and his dog, or in this case, a dog and his boy.

Written and illustrated by the wonderfully talented Olivier Tallec, this is book would make the perfect story for a child with a furry best friend.
