The Scallywags Blow Their Top!
By David Melling
A sequel to the bestselling The Scallywags from the creator of Hugless Douglas.
The Scallywags are a band of unruly wolves who find it hard to behave properly. But after they storm out of the Forest Show, they meet their match in the shape of a little sheep. It's not long before they are begging to be accepted again by the other animals. A brilliant follow-up to The Scallywags that shows, in the funniest possible way, that it doesn't pay to lose your temper.
From the bestselling creator of the Hugless Douglas series, which has sold over 1.4 million copies in 26 languages.
'A useful story to show children that it's no fun being at the receiving end of a bad temper.' - Junior
