The Way of Dog

Be strong. Be fierce. Life is more than a concrete floor.

Scruffity is born into a harsh, grey world. What he yearns for most is Family. But no one wants him. Just as his chances of adoption grow thin, Scruffity is set free by a boy as unwanted as he is.

He learns how to run, to dig, to howl and, biggest of all, to love. But then tragedy strikes …

How does a dog find his way home when he never had one to begin with?

A heartfelt, wondefully written and totally compelling story of love and belonging.

Told through the eyes of a young pup, Scruffity, who will tug at your heartstrings.

Themes of friendship, loss and hope are woven through a gripping narrative.

Stunning illustrations by Sean Buckingham.
