"Scuppers the Dog wants to be a sailor. He was born at sea and he wants nothing more than to return to water. Finally, after a long time, Scuppers gets the chance to go out into the deep blue ocean—but his ship gets wrecked! Oh no! But Scuppers won’t let that bother him. He fixes his boat and gets right back to it!" -- Amazon.ca

While it's like nostalgia, this story is a part of me. Admittedly I was introduced to it a part of Golden Books videos, and the illustrations also came from other books of hers, but even so, Scuppers will always hold a place in my heart. His never give up personality is extremely encouraging. ( )

Read (for the first time ever) in [b:Story Land: 40 Of The Best Little Golden Books Ever Published|1786505|Story Land 40 Of The Best Little Golden Books Ever Published|Golden Press|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1188336040s/1786505.jpg|1785397]. I agree with the reviewers who panned it, and those who praised it. Depends on what you want out of story, I guess. I, personally, thought it cute enough. ( )

Scuppers is a sailor dog, through and through. He was born and lived the first several years of his life at sea. When his parents start getting too old for sea, they move onto dry land. Scuppers tries to be happy but knows that he's "a sailor dog" and needs to be out on the sea to be truly happy. So he sets out on his own to get himself a boat and get back to sea. Scuppers' is an endearing character that kids will love.
