Join in with Ruffles as he faces all the trials and tribulations of toddler life in this brightly colored new picture book series from award-winning author and illustrator David Melling.

As Ruffles learns about the world around him, he discovers there are lots of things he likes . . . and some things he doesn't! He loves scratching, digging, and chewing, but he does not like wearing his red coat on rainy days. No, no, no, no, NO! But when Ruffles wants to splash in puddles with his best friend, Ruby, he soon learns that sometimes wearing a raincoat is a very good idea after all.

Small sequential drawings of Ruffles struggling to wriggle out of and back into the notorious red coat prove priceless. . . . A playful, endearing tale of canine friendship.
