Kingsley has decided to get a job. This is not a decision to be taken lightly. After all, a job is a BIG responsibility.

But finding the right kind of job is much harder than Kingsley expected. Some jobs are tricky for paws. Some jobs are difficult to understand. And some just don’t seem to appreciate a dog's work ethic the way they should. Will Kingsley ever find a job that is exactly right?

A sweet, tender and deeply funny story about the power of friendship, belonging, and one dog’s mission to find the perfect job.

Industry Reviews
"Kids have a job: to read this book. They'll be great at it, and they'll love the work." --?Kirkus Reviews
"The combination of Evans's action-packed drawings of a dog on a mission and short, sharp language, reflective of a curious dog's thoughts, works brilliantly to emanate humour, warmth and wonderment.A Human for Kingsley leads the reader on a playful journey of finding friendship and understanding reciprocity." --Books + Publishing on A Human for Kingsley

"Delicate earth-toned illustrations rely on fine, sketchy outlines, pale color highlights, and all-white backgrounds to humorously flesh out the spare text. . . . An endearing, visually rib-tickling ode to best friends." --Kirkus Reviews on Ollie and Augustus

"Sweet and spare, the illustrations convey large feelings." --Booklist on Ollie and Augustus
