About the Author
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 he 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 petting the cat. He now works full time as an author and illustrator.
Reviews
"The text includes pleasing moments of lyricism. . . There are also little details sure to delight young animal lovers. . . Color is used effectively. . . .satisfying." --Kirkus Reviews

"Perdu is a winning and winsome protagonist, and Jones' story contains some wonderfully specific details. . . The soft, stylized illustrations beautifully capture the coziness of some moments and the harshness of others while bringing the pup and his predicament adorably to life. Perdu's quiet quest for home is a sweet journey worth taking." --Booklist

★ "A touching story of a little lost mixed breed dog searching for a home. The heartfelt words on the page beautifully complement the illustrations. . . . An excellent way to teach compassion and empathy."--School Library Journal, Starred Review
