Scruffy and the Egg

As featured in the Los Angeles Times, Scruffy and the Egg have been together forever, but they’ve been a long work in progress.

When Scruffy, a family dog, is left behind by his owners, he is shocked. Taking matters into his own paws, Scruffy embarks on an adventure to find them. But no adventure is without a few surprises. Along the way, Scruffy comes across an egg that’s fallen out of its nest. Together, the oddball pair searches for their families and a home. But sometimes, as they discover, family is where you find it.

Both picture books, Scruffy and the Egg and its sequel Scruffy and the Egg: Adventures on the Road, can be found on Amazon!


Based upon an old story that Angela and her dad used to tell each other when they were homeless (read the full scoop here), Angela felt that this was a story that needed to be told. For many families who may be “patchworked,” are experiencing homelessness, or are headed by a single parent, Scruffy and the Egg finally puts a voice out there that’s been missing from children’s literature for quite some time.
