Miami, Florida — October 10, 2014 — A new children’s picture book shares a story of triumph over adversity through the story of Scrappy, neglected underdog who runs away from home.

Scrappy the Dog by Juanita Destra & Ronald Destra, published by Destra World Books Publishing, is the story of a sweet pup named Scrappy who ventures out into the world to escape the mistreatment and lack of care he experienced at home. Like any dog, Scrappy is inquisitive and excited about his new adventures and experiences in the outside world. He is eager to leave his life of neglected and unhappiness behind him and is determined to move forward. On his journey, he meets new friends; some cruel, some kind and some who love him like he has never been loved before.

The story of Scrappy shows readers how life can change quickly and unexpectedly. It teaches children that life can be sad and happy at different points, but that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel.
