Special Wood-Bound Collector's Edition

A wild, lyrical, hilarious and beautiful story of a wild dog living and surviving in an urban park

Johannes, a free dog, lives in a park hemmed in on three sides by dense human neighborhoods, and on one side by the ocean. His job is to be the Eyes—to see everything that happens within the park and report to the park’s elders, three ancient bison who ensure the Equilibrium. His friends—a stalwart seagull, a mordant raccoon, a one-eyed squirrel, and a pelican who can read—work with him as the Assistant Eyes, observing the humans and other animals who share the park and making sure everything is in balance.

But changes are afoot. More humans, including Trouble Travelers, arrive in the park. A new building, containing mysterious and hypnotic rectangles, goes up. And then there are the goats—an actual boatload of goats—who appear, along with a shocking revelation that changes Johannes’ view of the world.

Readers will thrill to Johannes’s inimitable and wonderful voice, and will gorge on this unforgettable story of friendship, beauty, liberation, and running very, very fast.

Dave Eggers is the author of many books, among them The Circle—the companion to The Every—and also The Monk of Mokha, A Hologram for the King, and What Is the What. He is the cofounder of 826 National, a network of youth writing centers, and of Voice of Witness, an oral history book series that illuminates the stories of those impacted by human rights crises. He has been a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, and the National Book Critics Circle Award, and is the recipient of the Dayton Literary Peace Prize and the American Book Award.
