There’s something special about literature’s furry friends. The launch of Paws and Whiskers, a children’s anthology celebrating the cats and dogs of literature is a treat for animal lovers of all ages. Edited by the superstar of kids’ stories, Jacqueline Wilson, this lively collection features much-loved classics from Enid Blyton and Dodie Smith as well as cutting edge contemporary writers such as Patrick Ness and Anne Fine. Nick Sharratt’s distinctive illustrations make it a joy to flick through.
Alongside her glittering literary career, Wilson is an avid ambassador for Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, to which she is donating all the proceeds of the book and ticket sales. This book launch gives her a rare platform to discuss her passion for both writing and animals. The combination of the accessibility of the short story form and the heart-warming focus on favourite pets will engage even the most reluctant reader. Wilson fans will enjoy nabbing a signed copy of her latest book and finding out more about her favourite charity.
