Have you ever thought your nose was too big? Your ears to sticky out? Your sneeze too loud? Too tall? Too short? Too fat? Too thin?..Then you are not alone.
In a quiet place in the woods, is the not so quiet home of Mrs Malficelli and her animal family. It’s a place where animals that haven’t fitted in anywhere else, fit just so. It is also where Atlas lives, the biggest dog anyone has ever seen, the worlds worst guard dog, with clumsy paws the size of dinner plates and whose breath smells like pickled onions. But, along with many other misfits, including his best friend Norman, the cheese intolerant mouse, he is loved.
Atlas believes with all his heart that nothing will change his perfect world…until that is Mrs Malficelli offers a home to another Misfit called Suzi. Threatened by her arrival and terrified his place by the fire will be lost forever, Atlas sets out to get rid of her once and for all, setting a path that leads to him discover that there is a far more to him than he ever thought possible.
