Once upon a time there was a funny dog named Crispin's Crispian. He was named Crispin's Crispian because he belonged to himself.
So begins the story of a dog who runs bang into a little boy, who also belongs to himself. This quirky, breathtakingly illustrated story is one of Margaret Wise Brown's best.
