Poor Spike is bored. He's tired of running, jumping and playing Frisbee. Convinced he'd be happier being someone else?ANYONE ELSE!?Spike runs away and tries to be a horse, only to discover that it's hard to stand with a rider on your back. He tries to be a chicken, but learns that eggs are very fragile. He tries to be a fish, but finds out that water can be cold. And when he tries to fly like a bird, he falls flat on his furry face. It's a good thing Spike has a girl at home who loves him, because it turns out that being a dog is what he does best!With bright, expressive line drawings and a story that's fresh and funny, Paulette Bogan shows us how silly it is to try to be something we're not!
