These seemingly innocent questions, the kind usually asked by a child to an adult, take on a wildly humorous twist when addressed to a child by her dog, Murphy! The minimalist text and succinct illustrations, brilliantly set off the grandiose ambitions of this adorable, little dog with BIG ideas. His owner patiently answers all of his "why" questions, until finally, she's forced to tell it like it is: that Murphy is a D-O-G (not a human).

Quirky, charming, and absolutely hilarious, this book appeals to children, adults, and all those dog owners with canines who just don't believe they're not people!
