by Kelly DiPucchio, Brian Biggs (Illustrator) Charlie thinks his dog, Norman, has got it good: he gets to spend his days lounging on the couch or playing fetch, and he never has to do any homework. But when Charlie makes a wish to be a dog instead of a boy, things get a little topsy-turvy! New York Times best-selling author Kelly DiPucchio's signature humor and Brian Biggs's bold, playful illustrations come together in a hilarious tale that proves that the grass always does look greener on the other side (even if that side involves drinking from the toilet!).

- About The Author Kelly DiPucchio is the author of several picture books, including Sipping Spiders Through a Straw: Campfire Songs for Monsters, Grace for President, Liberty's Journey, and Dinosnores. Reviewers have praised her work as "hilarious," admiring her writing's "rollicking rhythm." She attended Michigan State University, where a creative writing professor strongly encouraged her to submit work for publication. However, it wasn't until after her children were born that she became interested in writing picture books. "They taught me everything I needed to know about becoming a picture book author," Kelly states. "They taught me important things like underpants are funny, arm pits make fine musical instruments, and ‘poop' rhymes with ‘soup.'" Kelly DiPucchio lives in suburb outside of Detroit, Michigan with her husband and three children.
