The eyes & the impossible  Cover Image Book Book

The eyes & the impossible / Dave Eggers ; illustrations of Johannes by Shawn Harris.

Eggers, Dave, (author,, illustrator.).


Have you seen this dog running? You have not seen him running. Not possible. No one has seen him running because he runs like light. Have you seen the movement of light? No. You have not seen the movement of light. Johannes is a free dog, a fast dog--such a fast dog! He lives in an urban park by the sea, and every day, he runs through the park, seeing all, missing nothing, and reporting what he sees to the park's three ancient Bison, the Keepers of the Equilibrium. But the Equilibrium has been disrupted. Mysterious rectangles are hypnotizing Johannes, the humans are erecting a mysterious new building, and an entirely new kind of animal has arrived in the park--and there are hundreds of them. Johannes must see better, run faster, and ultimately do more than run and see--he must liberate those he loves. -- Provided by publisher.
