The Scallywags

By the bestselling creator of the Hugless Douglas series, which has sold over 1.4 million copies in 26 languages. Find out more about David Melling at http://www.davidmelling.co.uk/

An ideal bedtime book ... This delightful tale is a true charmer ... Melling's witty illustrations are packed with imaginative detail, including the masterly touch of a delicate golden line tracing the swerling path of the kiss.

A deliciously written, illustrated and presented book. The Scallywags are a pack of wolves, always late, clumsy and smelly, causing the other animals to decide life is better without them. However, when they tidy themselves up, they become so clean, tidy and polite their detractors no longer recognise them! The text humorously celebrates difference and tolerance and the wonderfully energetic, funny illustrations deserve careful attention.

Full of unexpected twists and turns The Kiss That Missed is a wonderful literary example of how to temper fearsome episdoes with humour. ... this story is one which will demand endless rereading.
