Scruff the dog is a stray who just loves to dig. It doesn't make him the most popular dog in the neighbourhood. But when he sniffs out a pile of old bones, he gets all the neighbourhood dogs to help him. They uncover not one, not two, not three ... but 100 bones. It is the biggest dinosaur discovery of all time! Scruff's find wins him new friends and a new home.
A little dog who makes a big discovery...
One Hundred Bones from Yuval Zommer is a fun picture book about a dog who digs up plenty of bones ... then finds a new home too! ... Yuval Zommer's narrative has a great pace, with plenty of enjoyable little twists and turns to hold the attention of little readers. His illustrations really are quite glorious, and will certainly be adored by dog lovers in particular. -- Emma Perry My Book Corner This is a story with a moral which I thoroughly approve: the muddy and messy shall rule the world. Scruff the stray dog loves to dig. But his pals Percy the Pug, Pixie the Poodle and Ada the... you get the gist, don't want to scuff up their coats. Scruff finds 100 bones at the bottom of a hole but they're not like anything he's seen before. The gang take them to the Natural History Museum and a prof with a vaguely Russian name declares them rare dinosaur bones and Scruff makes the front pages. Yuval Zommer, a graduate of the Royal College of Art, must be congratulated for getting dogs and dinosaurs into this rich storyline (the kids' picture book equivalent of a full house in bingo) and for his original, delightful illustrations. -- Alex O'Connell The Saturday Review - The Times
