Penny and the Little Lost Puppy

By Emily Sutton

The author-illustrator debut from one of the best artists working today – featuring one adorable little dog!

Moving home can feel a bit lonely, so Penny can’t believe her luck when she finds a new friend right in her garden: a puppy who wants to play all day long! But the next morning, Penny's playmate is nowhere to be seen ... wherever can she have gone? To find out, Penny and Dad will have to get to know their new town a little better. With this charming tale, the award-winning artist behind The Christmas Eve Tree and the critically acclaimed Tiny series makes her debut as an author-illustrator: here is a story about making friends and finding ways to belong, matching a gentle text with spectacular, detailed artwork. The result is a book to pore over – perfect for any young dog fans.

Reviews

'[A] touching story from one of our greatest children’s illustrators [...] To open one of Sutton’s books is to submit to fantasy.' The Times

'The acclaimed artist makes her author-illustrator debut with a delightful story of an adorable little dog. As readers join the search for the pup, Sutton’s intricate artwork offers up treats galore.' The Bookseller

'Sutton’s intricate illustrations complement her simple, gently suspenseful prose.' The Daily Telegraph

'There are more intricate images in Penny and the Little Lost Puppy, Emily Sutton’s debut as author-illustrator. A sweet-shop array of rainbow hues and fascinating details lend the story of a little girl, a lost puppy, a new home and a new friend a child-pleasing, involving freshness. Kids of four or five plus will enjoy the more sophisticated picture book.' The Guardian
