Figgy Mustardo loves his family, especially George.
He wants to go everywhere George goes.
But dogs can't go to school,
or to the Pizza Palace,
or to the go-kart track.
Figgy stays home alone with nothing to do but wait.
Or does he
While the family's away, Figgy eats his way to adventures that rock the neighborhood. Everyone comes, and everyone plays! Everyone except the Mustardos, especially George, until the day the Mustardos discover Figgy's secret life and how much Figgy means to them.
Alison Friend was on vacation one year, making jams and chutneys with her husband, when they discovered a recipe for "Figgy Mustardo." The chutney was good, but Alison thought the name was better suited for a feisty little dog. That's how Figgy came to be! Alison is also the author and illustrator of Freddy & Frito and the Clubhouse Rules, which Kirkus Reviews called "a playful, lighthearted lesson about peacekeeping and place-keeping." She lives with her family in the Lake District in England.
