From the fabulous duo behind Elephantantrum comes another hilarious picture book about a crazy pup who knows that if you believe in yourself, you can do anything! The mean miserable Jones family never take any notice of their dog, even though he is just bursting to be loved. That Dog doesn't want to be ignored by his owners - he wants to be a firefighter or a TV presenter or a top chef! He reaches for the stars and grabs them with both hands.
