Scuffy the Tugboat

A little red tugboat named Scuffy dreams of adventures that are bigger than floating in a bathtub. Is sailing down a real river what the toy boat truly wants? In this edition, author Kristen L. Depken updates the beloved story written by Gertrude Crampton and published as a classic Little Golden Book. This reimagined tale for young readers uses simple language to share the message about finding happiness anywhere. New artwork by illustrator Sue DiCicco helps the expressive tugboat spring to life as he chugs away on an adventure.

Tie-in Activity: Sponge Boat
Trim a small kitchen sponge into a boat shape. Make a “sail” out of duct tape, attach it to a craft stick, and insert the stick into the sponge. Your child can float the boat in the bathtub!
