Richly illustrated and full of fun, this tale of wishes and what happens if they come true shows how valuable and enriching friendship is. Paws, a delightful dachshund puppy, is so happy with his new family that he wants to become a boy and join them in doing the things humans do. He soon realizes, however, that this idea carries consequences, and he risks giving up some of the things he loves about himself. By almost losing the characteristics that make him unique, he learns that being different is something to celebrate. In fact, all of Paws's friends are different and wonderful in their own ways, and the friendships they share are all the more special for it.
