Buzz is a very lucky dog. He lives in a fancy house inside an even fancier one. His appearance is maintained with the utmost care, and his elevated pedigree is a point of pride. Some might say that Buzz has it all . . . but what does it mean to 'have it all,' exactly? And is it enough to have everything you could want - except the freedom to be yourself?

For anyone who has ever felt pressure to be 'good' at the expense of their own self-expression, and for anyone who has ever owned and loved a dog, this beautifully illustrated picture book from author-illustrator Marianna Coppo will have you laughing, smiling, and longing for your own frolic in the park.
