author/illustrator: Simon James
Everyone knows that owners and their dogs belong together in a unique way. Polly belongs to Molly, Eric belongs to Derek, Berry belongs to Terry. But poor Mr. Scruff, alone in the rescue shelter, doesnít belong to anyone. Then a boy named Jim walks in, and they seem to get along. Jim and Mr. Scruff donít look anything alike, and their names certainly donít rhyme, but they may end up belonging to each other just the same. From author-illustrator Simon James comes a warm, winning story about friendship and finding a home.
A sweetly silly story of a little boy and a dog who make an unlikely (but perhaps perfect) pair.
