Wolves tend to get quite a bad press in storybooks, but The Scallywags are determined to learn some manners! By the bestselling creator of Hugless Douglas.
The Scallywags are a bunch of rather messy noisy wolves who find it rather hard to behave properly. But as they soon discover, if it means losing your friends, then just maybe it's time to practise those manners... Only things start to get a little tiring, when they start telling everyone else what to do!
