Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review 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 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 What we loved about this wonderful and original story was Scruff himself. A central character who, despite his plight, is full of joie de vivre and a love of life - and his life-changing discovery sees Scruff come out on top in the end. A real underdog-makes-good story that made us feel all warm and glowy inside. Hooray for Scruff! Charlotte's best bit: Scruff's friend, the willowy wispy Afghan Hound (we don't see NEARLY enough Afghans any more!) Daddy's Favourite bit: We loved Scruff, he's a real champ - he might be scruffy and a stray but he's an awesome sniffer and wins the day in the end. What a lovely and original doggy tale! -- Phil May Read it Daddy!
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 2 stars (out of 5)
