April 7th: Launch Party for ‘The Real Pet Detective, ‘Sam & Chester’ and ‘Amber’s Donkey’

RUTH KELLY event ticket

Join us for wine and snacky things, and probably cake, to celebrate the release of three books….

realpet‘The Real Pet Detective: True Tales of Pets Lost & Found’ is due to be published on April 6th.

Any pet owner knows the agonising panic when their beloved furry family member goes missing, but Tom Watkins, former policeman turned pet detective, is on hand to reunite our animal companions with their owners. From recording the owner’s voice to lure cats from their hiding place, to organising a fly-over to raise the profile of missing Toby the terrier, from emptying the contents of the owner’s vacuum to tempt in the missing animal with the scent, to organising a Crimewatch-style reconstruction of a dog-snatching on national TV, Tom will do whatever it takes to get the nation’s pets home, safe and sound. The Real Pet Detective is the story of 20 years of missing pets, their owners and Tom’s team of expert pet investigators.

‘Sam & Chester’ and ‘Amber’s Donkey’ (both out in paperback on April 6th) are two inspiring books that reveal how a special relationship between humans (particularly children) and animals can transform lives.

Ruth Kelly is the writer behind these books – researching and retelling these real life stories for the enjoyment of others.

Come along and chat about your real life stories. Ruth and her publisher will be on hand to answer any questions, and the books will be available to be signed with a special price for ‘The Real Pet Detective’.

This event is free but please RSVP by emailing sales@hungerfordbookshop.co.uk, calling us on 01488 683480, clicking ‘going’ on the facebook event invite, or by popping in. We wouldn’t want to under-order the wine…
