About The Book

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.

About The Author

Born in Warwickshire, Richard Jones has been living and working in Devon for over 20 years. After leaving university with a degree in graphic design and illustration, he stayed on a little longer to complete a PhD. He spent several years working in a busy children’s library, issuing and shelving other artists’ picture books before one day wondering if it wasn’t about time he had a proper go at creating one or two himself! He now writes and illustrates from the smallest room in his home. Across the roof tops of Exeter, and between the rounded Devon hills, he can just about make out the distant sparkling sea.
