By Emma Chinnery (Author)


Format Hardcover Picture Book


The big city is a scary place for Fluffy, the little lost dog—until she makes a friend who will help her in this carefully observed story that challenges readers to re-evaluate perceptions of homelessness.
Fluffy wants to befriend Andy, but his owner never lets them play together. Only after he gets separated from his family at the park is he able to truly interact with his new friend. With the help of Andy and his owner, Fluffy finds his way back home and makes a new best friend in the process.

Emma Chinnery combines a gentle approach and a strong narrative to help guide authentic conversations around a complex issue in this heartwarming story about compassion and inclusion.
