Arf-arf-arf-a-ROOOOO That's Scooter saying that this book has it all: humor, adventure, unconditional love, and a memorable dog named Scooter.
Scooter LOVES the outside. He loves it so much that one day when Lucy accidentally leaves the door ajar, Scooter goes out all by himself. But without Lucy, the outside is a scary place, with trucks that go WEEEEE-OOOOO-WEEEEE-OOOOO and BEEP-BEEP-BEEP Luckily, Lucy finds Scooter. Children will relate to Scooter's curiosity as well as his fears, and will enjoy the endearing pictures and the fun read-aloud sounds.
