A Human for Kingsley
5 May 2021
Kingsley had decided to own a human. This was not a decision to be taken lightly. After all, owning a human is a responsibility.
But finding the right kind of human is much harder than Kingsley expected. Some are too bossy. Some are too busy. And some just don’t seem to appreciate a dog the way they should. Will Kingsley ever find a human that is exactly right?
A sweet, tender and deeply funny story about the power of friendship, and one dog’s mission to find his perfect person.

Kingsley the dog is on the hunt for his very own human—but not just any human will do! Some are too mean and some are too loud, while some are too fast and some are too rude. No human seems to be the right human for Kingsley, until he meets a little girl. She isn’t too mean, or too rude, although she does have some strange hobbies (like taking baths on purpose). Kingsley thinks carefully about whether this is the right human for him, and eventually decides that—regardless of whether she is the right human for him—he is the right dog for her.
Through Kingsley’s eyes, the process of adopting a pet takes on an unexpected and delightfully witty tone. This charming story engages with ideas about decision making and responsibility and extends theory of mind as the readers are urged to consider the same situation from different perspectives.
Kingsley’s opinions on some of his prospective humans are very funny, and the finely detailed illustrations and light-hearted, humorous text make for a wonderful reading experience.
