There was once a dog who had no name, and he had no home. What he did have was fleas, but they weren't much company. The dog longs for a family. At last he sees one that looks just right - with a brother and sister to play with him. He follows them around everywhere but they shoo him away. It's not till the little boy runs away from home, that Fleabag (as they call him) can finally win his way into their hearts - and home.

Helen Stephens likes to draw in a sketch book everyday, and often these sketch book drawings lead to new picture book ideas. 'Fleabag' was inspired by a trip to Battersea Dogs Home. Helen studied illustration at Glasgow School of Art and has worked as a freelance illustrator and as an editorial illustrator. She lives in London.Review:
"Cleverly, tenderly, [Stephens] touches on some big emotions for young readers: loneliness, rejection, sadness and fear. Yet it’s her gentle humor and the characters’ innocence, loyalty and love that triumph. When readers reach the last spread...they will ask for more, again and again. Just dazzling." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“This down-on-his-luck mutt has cuteness in spades” —Booklist"The illustrations are bright and happy, picturing an appealing little mutt with fleas flying over his head. He looks like just the right sort of dog for a boy. An enjoyable story for groups or bedtime sharing." —School Library Journal "Fine writing, an engaging story and appealing art create a winning picture book. Stephens' final page shows her sketches, drawn in a shelter, of the original fleabag. Grade: A-"—Cleveland Plain Dealer "Flynn and his people are not the only lucky, happy people involved in this story, and that is what makes 'Fleabag' a lovable choice."—Florida Times-Union
