An energetic little dog sets off on the chase of his life — but wanders a little too far — in this beguiling new story from the creator of FRANCIS THE SCAREDY CAT.
For Scoot, Sally’s beloved dog and friend, every day is an adventure, running, jumping, and playing together in the backyard. But one day Scoot spies a red balloon. Could it be his ball floating over the fence? And suddenly he’s on the other side and out in the big wide world! Scoot has so much fun finding smells and sights, and chasing sheep and seagulls, that he even forgets about Sally until — wait, just how far away from home is he?
Ed Boxall is the author-illustrator of FRANCIS THE SCAREDY CAT. He says, "Scoot was inspired by a dog my family had when I was a child. His name was Tobi, and he was always bursting with energy and used to run like crazy and leave us all behind." Ed Boxall currently lives in Hastings, England, where he teaches drawing and works at a local magazine promoting the rights of young people.
