The Way Of Dog - Zana Fraillon

Orphan puppy Scruffity yearns for Family – and when he is set free by a boy as unwanted and lonely as he is, his dream is fulfilled. But when tragedy strikes, Scruffity is alone again. How does a dog find his way home when he never had one to begin with?

This is a brilliantly moving story told in verse, and I dare you not to be in puppy-love with Scruffity as he finds his place and way in the world after the cruelest of starts...

Joined in his quest to find love and friendship by a 'manpup' and later 'CharlieMan', Scruffity's voice, once you get into the swing of reading in rhyme, is both captivating and heartbreaking in places to read, as he strives to find Family, using TheWayOfDog along the way to try and help him in the various situations he's placed in.

Ultimately a story of the poser of love and hope, and perseverance, this is dazzling writing, unique and unusual, but all the more enjoyable for it. Unlike anything I've read recently, this will stick with me for a long time.

Thank you to Chicken House and Laura Smythe PR for the copy of the book to review and the place on the blogtour.
