A dog is a man's (and a child's) best friend--but it's tough when your best friend can only bark, yip, growl, and howl!
Young readers will empathize with this sweet and funny story of a boy who begs his dog to talk. Tim Bowers' humorous pictures give a glimpse of what life might be like if dogs could crack jokes, chat on the phone, and even sing lullabies!
