The moving, beautifully illustrated story of a little lost dog and his search for a place to call home.
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 looking out for Perdu?
Perdu is the first picture book to be both written and illustrated by Richard Jones — the illustrator of the internationally bestselling The Snow Lion. This poignant gem, with an important message about kindness at its heart, deserves to become a modern classic.

Richard Jones grew up in Leamington Spa before moving down to Devon to study illustration at the University of Plymouth in Exeter and never went home again! After finishing his degree, he stayed on to complete a PhD. While working on his thesis, Jones got a “temporary” job in Exeter’s Central Library and somehow found himself working there for more than ten years. When not at his desk, he enjoys bobbing about in the sea, swimming in rivers, walking in woods, listening to audiobooks on the bus, and stroking the cat. He now works full time as an author and illustrator.
