The scruffy dog is brave and fast and smart ... but he's all alone. No-one feeds him. No-one wants him. No-one loves him. Until one day ...

This heart-warming waggly tale of resilience and belonging, by award-winning author/illustrator Stephen Michael King, will fit cosily into any children's book collection. After you meet Mutt Dog, you'll want him to belong to you too.

About the Author

Stephen Michael King’s first picture book, The Man Who Loved Boxes, skyrocketed to popularity, winning the Family Award for Children’s Books in 1996. It was also short-listed in the Crichton Award for Children’s Book Illustration and has been sold around the world.

The Christmas 1996 bestseller, Beetle Soup, a collection of Australian poems and stories for children, illustrated by Stephen, was short-listed for the 1997 Children’s Book Council of Australia Picture Book of the Year Award.

Stephen describes drawing as something that he simply can’t live without! ‘As far back as I remember I loved to draw. All I needed was a stick and a nice patch of dirt and I was happy for hours. When I was ten years old I became partially deaf and experienced difficulty communicating with people. Drawing and dreaming became my escape …

‘I work from a small studio in my backyard surrounded by my growing forest of trees. Our house is in a tiny township near the Hawkesbury River in Sydney and we are surrounded by national park. My favourite pastime is sitting on my front step and dreaming of the veranda I will build one day.

‘I work mainly with watercolours and ink, although I do occasionally use coloured pencils. I work fast so my ideas stay fresh and my brush and linework fluid.’

Explores poverty, homelessness and kindness


This book is great for exploring poverty, homelessness, kindness, community and belonging. Its one of my early childhood teacher 'must have' books.
