When an accidentally DNA-altered puppy is born with a thumb, his lovelorn, grad-student caretaker devises a strategy to achieve their Kardashian-like fame and fortune. But what goes up . . . must inevitably fall back down in this tale of unrequited love and 21st century celebrity.
Howlingly good fun!

I loved this book, from the minute I picked it up I was delighted. While lighthearted, it was also full of suspense. Great read Mr Barkawitz, keep em coming.

Reviewed in the United States on December 2, 2016
A kooky little book that pulls your leg and tugs at your heart strings. Mark Barkawitz has delivered once again in his signature style. Besides being a heart-warming tale of physical deformity/evolutionary spectacle, it also offers commentary on the fleeting nature of fame without being too high-and-mighty about it. This novella is a page turner and a definite recommendation for winter days where you want to stay inside and finish a tightly constructed yarn over a hot beverage.
