Coming Spring 2021


by Richard Jones

A beautiful, moving story of a lost dog searching for a family and a home. From the illustrator of The Snow Lion and Paper Planes.

Poor Perdu is all alone as he journeys from the countryside to the city in search of a home. The city is a big place when you are very small, but is it possible that someone is searching for a friend like Perdu?

In his debut as both author and illustrator, Richard Jones delivers a warmhearted and poignant story about loneliness, kindness, friendship, and finding a forever family. Classically gorgeous illustrations will have readers returning to its pages again and again.
