About the Book

Frank is a really big dog. Although he loves to lie on the couch with his boy, Bobby, Bobby’s mother doesn’t want him up there; she says he’s too big.

Frank feels sad and decides to run away, to go and find a place where people like big dogs. As he goes around the neighborhood, he meets several other dogs. There’s Jessie, who is quite little, and Murphy, who is a medium-sized dog with big ears. And there’s Gibby, whose tail is long and whose fur is thin. Frank wishes he could be like any of these other dogs, but he soon learns he’s not the only one with problems. When Bobby comes looking for him, Frank learns an important lesson about being himself.

In this children’s book, a big dog named Frank discovers that his uniqueness is a blessing and that it’s best to be himself—no matter what!
