Product Details


Within the well-crafted narrative, occasional bits of dialogue help define various characters’ personalities while moving the story forward. The dynamic, digital illustrations are varied in composition and in point of view, showing an amusing dog’s-eye-view of people (legs only) in the park scenes and an intriguing, cutaway underground view of the dig site full of bones. The volume’s large format showcases Zommer’s strong, engaging artwork and makes this lively picture book as rewarding for reading aloud to groups as to individuals.
—Booklist (starred review)

This book includes a winning combination of dogs and dinosaurs, alliteration such as “Sidney the sausage dog” and “Percy the Pug,” and lots of humorous details. This story of a homeless dog who triumphs in the end is a sure winner.
—School Library Journal

Zommer’s text captures the open-hearted enthusiasm of the scrappy Scruff, and entertaining soft-hued illustrations keep the action at dog’seye level; readers see only the bottom half of any of the humans.
—The Horn Book

This adorable story draws the reader in as one feels compassion for Scruff in his loneliness and joy when he finally finds a home of his own. Young children will be drawn to the simple words and colorful art.
—School Library Connection
