Mr Scruff

By Simon James
Illustrated by Simon James

The humorous story of a little boy and a dog who are destined to be together!

Polly belongs with Molly, Eric belongs with Derek, Perry belongs with Terry – everyone knows that owners and their dogs belong together in their own unique way. But for Poor Mr Scruff, alone in the dogs' home, there's no one – that is until a very special little boy arrives looking for a friend... A wonderful, witty and warm story about the true nature of friendship from award-winning author-illustrator Simon James.

  • Simon James's gentle watercolour illustrations add depth and heart to this charming story of friendship and fitting in.
  • From award-winning author-illustrator Simon James, whose books for Walker include Dear Greenpeace and Rex.
  • An endearing and funny story, told in a lyrical, rhythmic text that explores the ideas of belonging and being loved, no matter who you are or what you look like!
