ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Kingsley, a low slung and long-coated canine of indeterminate breed, decides to own a human. Certainly not a decision to be taken at all lightly, because there are many things that need to be considered. He tries out a variety of them, before he meets one that intrigues him, and follows her home. But is she really the right one for him? A charming tale with a rather adorable dog and a feisty young lass - and of course, a happy ending! Illustrations full of movement and small details that add to the wit of the story.  Lindy

Kingsley had decided to own a human. This was not a decision to be taken lightly. After all, owning a human is a responsibility.

But finding the right kind of human is much harder than Kingsley expected. Some are too bossy. Some are too busy. And some just don't seem to appreciate a dog the way they should. Will Kingsley ever find a human that is exactly right?

A sweet, tender and deeply funny story about the power of friendship, and one dog's mission to find his perfect person.
