A dog named Odysseus lives in a dog shelter and dreams of finding an owner and a friend. One dark night, Odysseus runs away from the shelter, setting off on a long journey full of adventure. What surprises will he encounter along the way and will he manage to find a new family that would adopt him?

Author and illustrator Lena Repetur was inspired by her own dog who made an incredible journey to find his home.
