The story of one dog's attempt to save his family, become a star, and eat a lot of bacon.
Cosmo's family is falling apart.
And it's up to Cosmo to keep them together.
He knows exactly what to do.
There's only one problem.
Cosmo is a Golden Retriever.
Wise, funny, and filled with warmth and heart, this is Charlotte's Web meets Little Miss Sunshine - a moving, beautiful story, with a wonderfully unique hero, from an incredible new voice in middle grade fiction - perfect for fans of Rebecca Stead and Kate DiCamillo.
"This gem has all the warmth and joy of Homeward Bound, and is making me want to get a golden retriever immediately."
- Catherine Doyle, author of The Storm Keeper's Island
"Cosmo's narration combines wit, heart, stubbornness, and a grouchy dignity, all ably tugging at funny bones and heartstrings alike."
- Kirkus (starred review)
"I adored this, a genuine feel-good delight with the most lovable animal narrator I've read in ages."
- Fiona Noble, The Bookseller
"Like any good dog, Cosmo is so funny, friendly, and loyal that he quickly became a dear friend, so much so that when I finished reading the book, I missed hearing his voice and picturing his shaggy face. Come back, Cosmo!"
- Jim Gorant, author of the New York Times bestseller The Lost Dogs
