What did you like about the book? Scruff (One Hundred Bones) is back for another doggy adventure. Scruff is a dog who loves sausages “teeny ones, spicy ones, big fat juicy ones, curly ones, stinky ones, and even veggie ones!” Everyone in town knows that Scruff is a sausage connoisseur, so when 100 sausages disappear from the butcher shop, he is the prime suspect. Determined to prove his innocence and nab the thief, Scruff enlists the help of his friends: a pug, a poodle, a dachshund and an Afghan hound. Soon they track the scent to Vinnie’s van and save the day… and the sausages. The digital illustrations are full of color and fun. This is sure to be a hit at story time.
