Dog lovers of all ages will revel in the humorous role-reversal as this dog teaches his human all the skills he needs to be a faithful companion.

Many dogs have human owners. Not this dog. He fetches his own slippers, curls up at his own feet, and sometimes, if he's not comfortable, he tells himself to roll over. His life is pretty perfect, except for the itch on his back that he just can't reach. When a friendly person scratches the itch for him, then follows him home, the little canine can't help but adopt him. Caldecott Honor winner David Ezra Stein has fans at his command with this comical dog's-eye view of having a best friend.

"A sweet and funny role reversal! An ode to the transformative joy of companionship." — The New York Times Book Review
