The Dog Who Wouldn’t Be

Penguin Modern Classics Edition

Publisher: Emblem Editions
The uproarious true adventures of a dog who doesn’t understand that he’s a dog
 
Farley Mowat’s best-loved book tells the splendidly entertaining story of his boyhood on the Canadian prairies. Mutt’s pedigree was uncertain, but his madness was indisputable. He climbed trees and ladders, rode passenger in an open car wearing goggles, and displayed hunting skills that bordered on sheer genius. He was a marvellous dog, worthy of an unusual boy growing up in a raw, untamed wilderness. Charming and poignant, The Dog Who Wouldn’t Be paints a lively portrait of an unorthodox childhood and unforgettable friendship.
