A homeless unloved pup becomes one lucky dog in this tender picture book …” —starred Publishers Weekly Review.
McDuff is back in a new edition to delight a new generation of readers.
Set in the 1930s, a little dog bounces out of a dogcatcher’s truck one night and searches the neighborhood looking for a home.
Fred and Lucy, a young couple, take him in, and bathe and feed him, but decide they are too busy to keep him. After they set out for the dog pound, they realize that they can’t give him away.
At home again, during a late night celebration of adoption, they name him McDuff after their favorite brand of shortbread biscuit.
