Penny and the Little Lost Puppy

By Emily Sutton
Illustrated by Emily Sutton

The author-illustrator debut from one of the best artists working today – featuring one adorable little dog!

Moving home can feel a bit lonely, so Penny can’t believe her luck when she finds a new friend right in her garden: a puppy who wants to play all day long! But the next morning, Penny's playmate is nowhere to be seen ... wherever can she have gone? To find out, Penny and Dad will have to get to know their new town a little better. With this charming tale, the award-winning artist behind The Christmas Eve Tree and the critically acclaimed Tiny series makes her debut as an author-illustrator: here is a story about making friends and finding ways to belong, matching a gentle text with spectacular, detailed artwork. The result is a book to pore over – perfect for any young dog fans.

  • An utterly delightful author-illustrator debut with a search-and-find element, starring a very popular animal.
  • The story takes inspiration from life: Penny is named for Emily's niece, and the puppy is based on Emily's first dog Sylvie.
  • One of the best artists working today, Emily has a growing social Instagram following (13k and counting!) where she regularly posts sketches and pictures of her new pup Mouse.
