We rated this book:


“No one wanted the dog from the shelter because he was scruffy. A guy with a scruffy beard took him home and named him Scruff. Then he figured out his dog didn’t run and play like the others. The dog jumps in the bathtub and the owner figures out he just wanted to be pampered. After a haircut Scruff decided that he wanted to enter a dog show. With some extra sprucing they enter the dog show. Did they do enough to win. The text is minimal which works well. I think it also fits for a book for a young child. This is a good depiction of a scruffy dog. The style is more simplistic with lots of wide lines. From a parent’s perspective though, I’m not sure if the plot quite works. It seems to be a little disjointed somehow and has me asking what the point of the story is. This seems like a nice quick story for a smaller child.
Age Range: Three to six years”
