“I’m a free and independent dog!” That’s how K-10 likes to think of himself. But life on the road can get lonely, and as K-10’s travels bring him into contact with a range of dogs, he begins to wonder if being a wanderer really is the best life for a dog. Filled with great canine characters, this novel is both laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching.

“William Dufris brings each dog character to life with a unique voice to match its distinct personality. Dog and animal lovers will gladly romp along with K-10 and his canine pals.” — School Library Journal November, 2009

“Excellent family listening and a good model for expressive oral reading. Will be a favorite with dog lovers.” — Booklist October 1, 2009

“All three dogs are delightfully voiced by Dufris, who also provides voices for the various dogs they encounter, such as a Doberman named Adolf, complete with a German accent, and a thuggish rottweiler whose dialogue is straight out of a gangster film. Dufris delivers these canine misadventures with glee” — Audiofile August 2009
